We are proud to present new divisions and categories this year that open the Copper Quill program to new audiences and that are also consistent with this year’s Gold Quill divisions.
Award entries are reviewed by communications professionals from IABC chapters across the country, and the entrants benefit from hearing these judges’ comments on their work. The winners are recognized through a variety of media outlets as well as at a Copper Quill Awards event.
What value does winning a Copper Quill provide? Winning a Copper Quill award is not just a great way to gain visibility and added credibility, but can go a long way in the eyes of current or future client. Take it from Alison & Partners Laura Zilverberg. Alison PR was recognized with a Award of Merit, Award of Excellence and a Best-of-the-Best Award at the 2011 Copper Quill awards ceremony.
Valley communicators have also had their work recognized with IABC Southern Region Silver Quill Awards and IABC International Gold Quill Awards, which recognize the pinnacle of achievement in business communications.

The IABC Phoenix chapter has been recognized numerous times with Chapter Awards at IABC’s annual Leadership Institute, and has also been designated Chapter of the Year on multiple occasions by IABC International.
