about the awards

Today's top communicators are demonstrating their worth through smart thinking, creativity and innovation. The 2010 IABC Gold Quill Awards showcase the best examples in business communication from around the world and place the winners in an exclusive club of legendary communicators.

Indeed, this annual international competition is the highest level of professional acknowledgment in business communication today. For more than 35 years, the Gold Quill Awards program has tested the work of professional communicators, from strategists to tacticians, and recognizes the best of the best. This year, IABC received nearly 900 entries from 28 countries. Winners went through two rigorous rounds of judging by professional communicators, and in the end the international panel of judges awarded 32 Excellence Awards, 71 Merit Awards and three Student Awards.

We congratulate all the winners for their outstanding achievements in the field of business communication.
