Special Announcement: Gold Quill Entries from Russia
During this year’s Gold Quill application process, we received entries from Russian-based organizations, prior to the January deadline.
Traditionally, we would now be reviewing all Gold Quill submissions in preparation for the Awards ceremony at World Conference. However, the horrors of the Russian government’s invasion of Ukraine, our own IABC values, and the imposition of sanctions around the world require us to take a different approach.
We are announcing today that IABC will not move forward with evaluations of Gold Quill entries from Russia this year. The submissions will remain on file and may be considered in future years.
