Cheers to the Gold Quill winners!

Cheers to this year's Gold Quill winners! One hundred and five communicators from all over the world will walk away with the gold in honor of their excellent achievements in this prestigious and demanding contest. From more than 2,000 entries, 28 will receive Awards of Excellence and 81, Awards of Merit.

In past contests, communicators have walked away with as many as two awards each, but this is the first year that any communicator has won more than two awards -- Joe Williams of Joe Williams Communications, Bartlesville, Okla., won four, and Mike Vogl, Poudre Valley Hospital, Fort Collins, Colo., won three.

Twenty countries were represented in this year's program. Outside the U.S. and Canada, New Zealand had the most entries (59); the United Kingdom had 39; 14 came from Australia and 11 from Mexico.

Among the interesting observations of the judges on this year's entries was that the communication program that embodied the idea of having fun in the work place was a recurring theme. The judges said they doubted that this idea would have been found in entries submitted during the 80s. Also, in the employee communication program category, not a single entry dealt with the issue of downsizing -- also surprising given the current economic climate. Employee literacy was an issue or concern this year of several entrants.

In the judging process, first tier judges narrowed the field to the top three to five entries in each of the 92 categories. Then the Blue Ribbon panel met for two-and-one-half days to select the winners. This prestigious group is composed of Accredited Business Communicators, IABC Fellows, past Gold Quill chairmen and past Gold Quill multiple winners.

Awards will be presented at a gala banquet and awards ceremony at CONNECTIONS 1992, the 1992 IABC international conference, on May 27. Winning entries will be display at the conference.
