WELCOME TO THE 2012 SILVER INKWELL AWARDS

 

Recognizing excellence in business communication, IABC/DC Metro’s annual Silver Inkwell Awards program is the profession’s premier awards program in metropolitan Washington and Baltimore.. Whether you’re an internal or external communicator, agency, corporate, or government practitioner, winning a Silver Inkwell is an acknowledgement of your mastery of the principles and practice of business communication.

 

Aligned with communication best practices as defined by IABC International’s Gold Quill Awards, the Silver Inkwell Awards program offers an opportunity to shine among – and be acknowledged by – your peers in the country’s largest IABC chapter. It’s an opportunity to have your work evaluated by the experts and see how it compares with the work of your peers. In short, it separates the wheat from the chaff.

 

IABC/DC Metro will introduce the winners of the 2012 Silver Inkwell Awards on October 30 at the Hyatt Regency in Bethesda, Md.

 

Veteran communication professional, longtime IABC/DC Metro supporter, and Job of the Week founder Ned Lundquist, ABC, will host the gala.

 

Our guest speaker will be John Friedman, an award-winning communications professional and author of The New PR. John will share how companies must evolve their communications strategies to meet stakeholders’ changing expectations, and refine how we use both traditional and new media. Communication credibility requires moving from spin to transparency and action, and from issuing messages to hosting conversations. Friedman will present a message framework to accomplish this rapidly changing role.
