About Silver Quill
Pacific Plains’ Silver Quill Awards are held annually to provide communicators an opportunity to share their best work with the region. Silver Quills recognize work that has exceeded expectations, demonstrated outstanding creativity, and furthered organizational goals: boosting revenue, rallying employees, knocking socks off, and otherwise contributing to a wildly successful outcome.
Silver Quill Awards honor communications that achieve greatness:
- Setting and meeting objectives that deliver valuable, measurable results to the organization.
- Using strategic thinking, creativity, ingenuity or whatever it takes to get the job done.
- Measuring the outcomes to demonstrate success.
- You don’t need to be an IABC member to participate.
Award programs at regional and international Gold level use similar criteria, so projects may be entered at all levels. Each entry receives serious and constructive feedback from trained evaluators. This feedback provides entrants with insight and may be used to improve an entry for submission at the next level.
