Want a peek at what your peers are doing in communications?


Judge a handful of communication entries for IABC Chicago’s Bronze Quill Awards – all online – right from the comfort of your home, office (or backyard lounge chair)!

Being an awards judge for a fellow IABC chapter is an interesting, educational and professionally rewarding opportunity for members only.

Participating is easy!

  1. Email both Teresa Zumwald and Jolean Olson, IABC Chicago awards co-chair, and say you’ll be a judge.
  2. Receive an email invite from Jolean, log in to IABC’s Award Force with a temporary password, and sign a confidentiality agreement.
  3. Review four or five entries online at Award Force, and score at your convenience (scoring criteria are online, and comments are optional).
  4. Finish judging your entries by Sunday, July 30.

You’re guaranteed to learn something (and maybe even get some good ideas for your next communications project).

Send your email to Teresa and Jolean today – and thanks in advance for helping out a fellow IABC chapter!
