The IABC Southern Region’s annual awards competition, Silver Quill, is the chance for regional communication professionals to step up and be recognized for their achievements. Covering 47 categories aligned with the international IABC Gold Quill Awards, this is also a chance to ladder up to the next competition without rewriting your work plan.

Rather than being judged against other submissions, your entry is evaluated on its own merits using criteria of IABC’s Blue Ribbon Panel. So this is a great opportunity to take your game to the next level, advancing your career as you receive valuable feedback from seasoned professionals. Take advantage of the chance to elevate your thinking, hone your skills and create award-worthy work for your clients every day.

Who can enter

All communicators, including students, in IABC’s Southern Region.

What you can enter

Work implemented, published or broadcast between January 1, and the day of submission. Entries may be large or small projects from corporate and educational departments, agencies or sole practitioners.
