CHICAGO, May 24, 2021
­— Honoring communications excellence in 25 separate categories, the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) announced the winners of the 2021 Gold Quill Awards of Excellence and Awards of Merit.

This year’s award winners – like those who have preceded them for more than 40 years – submitted communication works of strategic relevance, timeliness and innovation. To select the winners, a blue- ribbon panel reviewed 482 entries from 22 countries and evaluated the submissions at 11 global sites.

“These recipients personify the spirit of the Gold Quill Awards: a recognition of excellence and a commitment to continuous learning and professional growth,” said Ritzi Villarico-Ronquillo, APR, IABC Fellow, and Chair of the IABC 2021 Awards Committee. “We are most grateful to everyone who submitted an entry, and to all the volunteers who selflessly devoted their time during a trying year.”

Gold Quill Awards entrants and winners represent the diversity of communications professionals in perspective, experience, geography and personal identity. In addition, their entries come from work conducted in organizations of all sizes including, boutique agencies, startups, consultancies, non-profits, educational institutions, governments and companies.

Please join us at the virtual Excellence Gala on June 29, 2021 as we celebrate these exceptional communication works across the globe.
