Celebrating Communication Excellence
Call for entries now closed.
For more than 35 years, the International Association of Business Communicators Toronto (IABC/Toronto) has celebrated professionals for their talent and creative brilliance through the prestigious OVATION Awards program.
The program offers award categories relevant to corporate communications, public relations, marketing professionals, event planners, writers, graphics designers, videographers and photographers.
The year 2020 changed everything. Every year typically has a few defining moments, but 2020 was very different. There were world-changing developments at every turn, political shifts, waves of social change and a global pandemic.
Communicators played an integral role in keeping people informed, safe and connected as we have navigated 2020 together (while apart).
You rose to the challenge. This is your opportunity to present your best work for feedback and industry recognition, while having it evaluated against the global standard of the communications profession.
You can choose from four divisions and more than 25 categories to submit your project. Whether you’ve managed a full strategy, conducted formative research, performed communication training or produced an outstanding tactic – there’s a category for you!
