Hooray for the 1991 Gold Quill winners! This year, 131 communicators from all parts of the globe will walk away with the gold. From more than 2,000 entries, 38 will receive Awards of Excellence and 93, Awards of Merits. These include an Award of Excellence to a French-language entry and two Awards of Merit to Spanish-language entries.

For the first time, the 1991 Call for Entries brochure was produced English, French and Spanish. The select panel of judges included coordinators to receive the French and Spanish entries.

After first-tier judges narrowed the field to the top three to five entries in each of the 92 categories, the Blue Ribbon panel met for two-and-one-half days to select the winners. This prestigious group is composed of Accredited Business Communicators, IABC Fellows, past Gold Quill chairmen and past Gold Quill multiple winners.

What's hot this year? Blue Ribbon panel members noted the following trends: emphases on quality, safety, subtance abuse, drug testing, cultural diversity and an increased focus by companies on their global operations. Mission/vision statements are becoming more prevalent in employee publications and appear to complement companies' efforts to teach managers to manage, motivate and encourage employees to offer ideas to help companies reach their goals.

Awards will be given at a gala banquet and awards ceremony at Power Moves, the 1991 international conference, be on display at the conference.
