In an effort to align with other IABC chapter and international awards programs, the IABC/Tulsa Board unanimously voted to postpone this year’s Bronze Quill Awards Program until March 2015.
In an email update earlier this month, Russell Grossman, vice chair of the IABC International Executive Board, announced new timing for IABC International’s Gold Quill Awards. In order to align with these changes, IABC/Tulsa will adjust the timing of our awards.
Award program alignment will allow for more consistent standards and programs across chapters, regions and internationally. It will also allow for assistance in judging entries and will make it easier for entrants to participate in every award program level if they choose.
The eligibility period for work submitted for the 2015 IABC/Tulsa Bronze Quill awards program will be expanded to accommodate work that would have been submitted for the 2014 awards program.
The IABC/Tulsa Board believes realignment is the right choice for our chapter. This will benefit chapter members and allow for a better overall awards program in Tulsa.
For more information on the realignment please visit the IABC/Tulsa website. If you have additional questions, please contact Megan Lewis or Lucia O’Connor, IABC/Tulsa Awards Co-Chairs, or visit our Bronze Quill FAQ page.
Watch your email for more information on the March Bronze Quill Awards. We look forward to many great entries in 2015!
