It’s not too late to submit your best work for recognition from a program that has more than 40 years of history and thousands of communication professionals behind it. But act quickly. The 2020 IABC Gold Quill Awards deadline is less than two weeks away.

After 9 January, late fees will be applied and entry rates increase from US$350 to US$525 for IABC members and from US$450 to US$625 for non-members. For students, rates increase from US$40 to US$50 for IABC members and from US$75 to US$90 for non-members. And then after 23 January, submissions will no longer be accepted.

Every IABC Gold Quill Awards submission gets constructive feedback from two highly experienced and trained communicators. You’ll receive your scores and feedback in early April, giving you time to plan to attend the Excellence Gala during the 2020 IABC World Conference in Chicago on 16 June 2020. If you win and are unable to attend, we’ll mail you your award. But none of this will happen if you don’t enter.

Your journey toward further professional growth and global recognition starts when you click the blue button below.

  1. Hi Ashley,
    The GQ site is not secure and therefore I am not able to get to the information. I tried on both Chrome and Firefox and got warning messages on both. The web certificate expired on December 27, 2017. I have a screen grab from both browsers if you want to investigate?

    1. Hi Claire! We apologize for the inconvenience–we’re currently working on it and hope to have the issue corrected as soon as possible. You should have full access to the site in the next couple of days. In the meantime, we’ve updated the link on this page to take you straight to the submission page, so you can submit your entry there. Here’s the direct link:
