2023 IABC Silver Quill Awards Logo with a silver quill

Get ready to submit your communications work for an IABC Silver Quill Award. You may enter work implemented, published or broadcast between Jan. 1, 2022, and the day of submission. You do not have to be an IABC member to enter.

With 55 categories that align with IABC International’s Gold Quill Awards, the 2023 Silver Quill Awards, hosted by the IABC Southern Region, provide an opportunity for communication professionals from the IABC Heritage Region, Pacific Plains Region and Southern Region to compete and be recognized for their communication excellence (and level up without having to rewrite their work plan).

Rather than being judged against one another, all entries are evaluated on their own merits using the same criteria as IABC’s Global Blue Ribbon Panel. This is your year to shine.

A few reasons why you should enter:

  • Showcase your innovation, ​​​talent and strategic thinking
  • Fine-tune your skills with expert feedback from senior professionals
  • Gain peer recognition for your excellence in professional communications
  • Enhance your personal reputation and gain credibility for your communication program
  • Build your resume with a portfolio of work that opens doors to new opportunities


  • Deadline: Wednesday, Sept. 20, 2023 at 11:59 PM (PDT)
  • Late Deadline: Wednesday, Sept. 27, 2023 at 11:59 PM (PDT)


Make plans to attend IABC Silver Quill Awards Cremony held virtually this fall.
