Elevate your game: Virtuoso Awards call for entries now open

Categories: News

The call for entries to IABC London’s 2021 Virtuoso Awards, celebrating excellence in communications and the best in creative strategy and design, is now open.

2020 was a year like no other. Communications, marketing, and creative professionals worked tirelessly to elevate their craft. Whether you led a team, worked on a project that kept people informed, or helped us to stay connected while being apart, your work has made a difference under challenging circumstances. Now, it’s time to be recognized! 

The Virtuoso Awards are southwestern Ontario’s premier awards program for communications, marketing, and creative professionals. Submitting a project gives you the opportunity to garner industry recognition while having your work evaluated against the global standard of the profession. You will also receive valuable feedback that can be applied to future work.

This year, we’re introducing a new category titled COVID-19 Response & Recovery Management and Communication, designed to recognize internal and external COVID-19-related programs and strategies.

Entries can be submitted for work completed over the past two years (2019 and 2020). Take advantage of our early-bird, standard and late deadlines to save on entry costs or gain more time to work on your entry, which can be easily submitted online:

  • Early bird deadline: March 5, 2021
  • Standard deadline: April 1, 2021
  • Late deadline: April 14, 2021

Check out our resources for entrants to access helpful tips in preparing your entry.

Winners will receive a statuette and will be recognized at our virtual celebration (more information to come). Winners will be further recognized across IABC London channels, highlighting excellence in our region.

Everyone – from student to polished professional – has a project worthy of recognition. This is your chance to show us how you elevated your work this year.
