Bronze Quill: Call for Entries

The IABC Bronze Quill Awards recognize outstanding employee communications, public relations, media relations, community relations, government affairs and marketing communication efforts. The Tulsa Chapter of the International Association of Business Communicators’ Bronze Quill Awards is open to all communicators – members and non-members alike – in the corporate, nonprofit, advertising, marketing and government sectors.

All entries must be submitted though the online judging system at www.awardsentry.org/tulsa. See the categories and judging criteria.

Deadline for entries:
Early Deadline: Wed., Sept. 4
Final Deadline: Wed., Sept. 11
Awards celebration: Thurs., Oct. 10

Entries will be judged based upon stated criteria and the Work Plan provided to the judges. A select panel of communications professionals from IABC chapters in other states will judge all entries.

SPECIAL AWARDS

In conjunction with the Bronze Quill Awards, IABC Tulsa is also seeking nominations for two important individual awards:

  • Communicator of the Year: Honors a member of the community for his or her contributions to the community through communications. This person is not a communicator by profession — but by passion. Previous recipients include former TU coach Bill Self; former Tulsa mayor Susan Savage; former Williams CEO Keith Bailey; Tulsa Community College President Tom McKeon; Pierce Norton, ONEOK; and Nancy Day, executive director of the Oklahoma Center for Community and Justice (OCCJ).
  • Professional of the Year: Recognizes the outstanding achievements of an IABC member in his or her career, profession and community. Past recipients include Russ Florence, Kerry Malone, Kim MacLeod, Susie Wellendorf, Ginger Homan, ABC, Tom Droege and others.
  • Leon Bolen Chapter Service Award: Formerly the President’s Award, the award is selected by the chapter president and given to the IABC Tulsa member who has contributed/volunteered the most to the chapter over the past year.

To nominate an individual for one of these awards, contact Megan Lewis at megan.lewis@oneok.com or 918-561-5325.

We will also present a Best of Show Award to recognize the entry judged to be the most effective and creative in achieving its goals.
