Communication – one of the most important ingredients for any organization to move its course to success, whether for business or advocacy.
This year, the International Association of Business Communicators is looking for the best communicators and communication strategies locally.
The Quill Awards 2013 is IABC’s way of recognizing private companies, organizations, agencies and professionals who have excelled in communicating their message to their respective publics.
The Quill Awards is patterned from its international counterpart in North America, from the categories to the standards of selection. Thus, any communication campaign recognized locally, can be concluded, to adhere with international standards of excellence in terms of business communication.
This year, the IABC added more categories to the Philippine Quill Awards, making more organizations enter their projects and vie for the awards.
According to Kane Choa, the current chairman for the Philippine Quill Awards of IABC, it is noteworthy, that the local Quill Awards is a good preparation for communication professionals who would like to vie for the Gold Quill Awards, which is organized annually by the San Francisco-based IABC, a professional network of 15,000 business communication professionals in over 80 countries. Members are further linked to over 160,000 professionals and academics through the Switzerland-based Global Alliance for Public Relations and Communication Management.
