2018 Golden Flames

IABC Atlanta’s 2018 Golden Flame Awards offers communicators the opportunity to gain local recognition for exceptional work through a peer-based panel of independent, international judges!

1. Choose Your Division & Category

Review the 2018 Golden Flame Call for Entries to choose from 28 categories across four divisions, which are aligned with IABC’s international Gold Quill awards program to give you a chance to ladder up to the next competition without rewriting your plan.
Each entry will be judged on its own merits, not judged against other submissions. The awards criteria are based on IABC’s Global Seven-Point Scale of Excellence. All entries will receive valuable feedback from IABC International’s team of Blue Ribbon Panelists.
