There process for entering is straightforward and there are lots of resources available to help you put your best foot forward. Putting together a submission requires a bit of time and attention to detail, but the rewards are significant. Benefits include:
- Enhancing your credibility: winning a peer-reviewed award is an honour that will make your resume shine.
- Honing your craft: the judges provide feedback to all applicants, whether they receive an award or not. This feedback will help you refine your skills and shape your career.
- Strengthening your network: the Awards Gala provides a unique networking opportunity to meet and learn from other communications professionals.
- Recognition for your organization: many employers value the Bronze Quill Award as recognition for best practices in communication – it accrues to them as well as to the communication professional.
