60 days until the World Conference: Register now and be entered to win Excellence Gala tickets

gq-award-inhand-cropThe start of the 2017 IABC World Conference is now only 60 days away and we have some exciting news to share about something we’ll be celebrating there.

We are thrilled to announce the winners of the 2017 Gold Quill Awards! There are more than 227 award recipients in total, with 74 recognized as Excellence winners and 153 as Merit winners.

A testament to IABC’s diverse, international community, winners come from around the world, with 16 countries represented in the list of recipients. These award winners come from a cross section of public and private sector organizations, both large and small.

The winners of the Special Awards for research excellence, addressing a critical business issue, and best student entry will be announced later this month, and recipients of the Best of the Best and team or agency of the year awards will be announced at the Excellence Awards Gala at this year’s IABC World Conference in Washington, D.C., where all 227 Gold Quill winners will have their names called.

Congratulations to all who are receiving recognition and thank you to everyone who took the time to submit their work for consideration. View the full list of Excellence and Merit winners here.
