A few days ago, we were invited to a small gathering of bloggers in Metro Manila. This event was for The Philippine Quill Awards 2013. This is the yearly search for the best business communicators in the industry duly supervised by International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) Philippines and has been going on for years now. I have projects of my own and when they discussed this that evening, I see some of it fit for some of the criteria they have set that can also apply for other corporations, individuals and organizations throughout the country. There is also a Philippine Student Quill Awards search that may qualify some of the best schools in the country. Last year, we saw companies such as Smart, ABSCBN, Stratworks, DLSU who won top Quill Awards divisions and they have made headway winning anew in the main International Golden Quill Awards in the US. They are now regarded as best in the industry, a feat that corporations worldwide would envy even those that are based in North America.
Just like you I had a few questions in mind and might have to take a look at past projects so I would know how to present something standardized as Quill. They will be holding seminars to get you acquainted in how to write and put together nominations. You will also get valuable tips and guidance on how to submit entries, learn how judges pick, what their mindset are and how decide choosing winners. They will also employ international standards so if you plan to join internationally, it'll be a great way to test out your projects as you step up to the plate and share Filipino excellence with the world!
For the "How to write a winning student Quill" Seminar, it will be held on July 19, 2013 at the Unilab Bayanihan Annex Pioneer Street, Mandaluyong City. This is going to be from 8AM to 12 noon. For corporations, organizations and what not, they will also hold a "How to write a winning Quill" Seminar from 1-5PM on the same day, same venue. To register, please contact the IABC Philippines Secretariat at (+632)756-0441, (+632)756-0424. You can also email them at email@example.com or visit their main website http://www.iabcphilippines.com.
The Philippine Quill Awards has got 42 categories covering four divisions namely Communications Management, Communication Research, Communication Skills, Communication Education and Training. Two new divisions will be also introduced namely the Communication Research and Education and Communication Training which covers internal and external training. Every division will garner a Top Award if you receive the highest scores from their board of judges. You can win this too but you need to prepare as early as now. Get acquainted with the standards, enter your projects and have it bill as the best in the industry in this year's Philippine Quill and Student Quill Awards 2013!
