Join us for a free, potluck-lunch professional development event on November 17.
Have you always wanted to submit an entry to the Brazos Bravo or Silver Quill awards, but have been unsure of what it takes to submit your work? Would you like to learn how to write a better award competition work plan that reflects the quality of your work sample? Come and learn what it takes to get your hard work recognized by other professionals in the communication field.
We will share some of the “fame and shame” of award entries. Find out what it takes to put together an award-winning work plan and see what NOT to do. Learn how to measure the value of your work as a communicator by addressing audience, impact, budget, and more. A panel of seasoned award winners and judges will be available to answer your questions and provide expertise.
Bring your favorite dish to share with the group as we hear about the “dos and don’ts” of award entries. There is no fee for this event, but you must register online to attend.
You may submit questions for the panel by sending an email to email@example.com by Monday, November 14, 2011.

About the IABC Award Competitions
IABC/Brazos Valley’s Brazos Bravo Awards recognize the achievements of individual members in a wide range of categories. A project can be submitted in multiple categories. Professional communicators from other IABC chapters across the country judge all entries. Whether you are a seasoned professional or a novice, Brazos Bravo is your best opportunity to have your work reviewed by objective and experienced peers.
Silver Quill is IABC Southern Region’s award competition. Submission categories include communication management, creative communications, and communications skills. IABC/Brazos Valley has worked hard to follow the same entry process as Silver Quill for our own Brazos Bravos—making it easier to enter both competitions!
The Gold Quill Awards winners represent the international best practices for communicators. Enter this global competition to receive the highest level of professional acknowledgment within business communication.
All awards are open to members and non-members of IABC. Join the best of strategists, managers, practitioners, corporate, government, non-profit communicators, agency executives, photographers, graphic designers, and creative conceptualists by showcasing your best work.
