Winners previously earned local communication award of excellence
FOR RELEASE: July 19, 2018
The Atlanta chapter of the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) today announced that several of its member companies earned top honors in the 2018 IABC Gold Quill Awards program, which recognizes excellence globally in business communications.
Entrants from 13 different countries participated in this year’s Gold Quill Awards competition. Atlanta-area winners include the American Cancer Society, Realm Inc., SunTrust Bank and UPS. Considered the “Pulitzer Prize” of the communications field, the Gold Quill Award recognizes excellence in communication and honors the dedication, innovation and passion of communicators on a global scale.
“We’re excited to see so many of our Atlanta companies honored,” said Julie Greenwell, president, IABC Atlanta. “Atlanta has always been a hotbed of business communication given the number of large corporations headquartered here, and these awards underscore the excellence of our chapter and city.”
The awards were presented in June at the annual Excellence Gala, held in conjunction with the IABC World Conference in Montreal. All of these projects had previously earned the IABC Atlanta Award of Excellence as part of the local chapter’s Golden Flame Awards competition. See the full list of international winners here.
