Radically Different! Call for Entries for the 2013 Gold Quill

2013 Gold Quill Call for EntriesThe Call for 2013 Entries is out. The brand new site is live. Plus, we’ve made things a whole lot easier and better, for the all new IABC Gold Quill Awards.

As you probably know, the Gold Quill is our international awards of excellence. And though there’s many changes, one thing has stayed the same: it’s all about YOU – recognising the work you’ve done over the course of 2012.

The Gold Quill gives you the opportunity to demonstrate how the work that you’ve produced this year meets a recognised global standard and that your work stands up to the best in the world.

Entrants come in all shapes, sizes and types, from more than 20 countries across the world. Our 2012 winners included a mix of small independents, medium sized agencies and big brand communicators from the US, Slovenia, New Zealand, South Africa, to Canada and India.

This year, you can submit entries in 41 categories, so there’s bound to be a place for you, whether it’s national or international, internal or external, strategic or tactical, digital or traditional.

So what’s new?

You have longer to enter this time, with an extended deadline of March 5, 2013.

You can do it all online! Yep. 100% digital.

We’re in the process of putting together the most experienced and qualified professional judging panels, ever. As of 2013 all our judges are required to complete a training that ensures they are IABC ‘International Awards Evaluators in Good Standing’. Nice.

This year, there’ll be five Blue Ribbon panels across the world evaluating and providing feedback on all Gold Quill entries.

On the brand new website there’s oodles of info about how to prepare and submit a killer entry, to better support and guide you throughout the entire entry process.

So why not visit and enter?

The all-new Gold Quill is the only global awards programme for professional communication. We know you are worth it!
