Tata Chemicals Limited (TCL), world’s 2nd largest manufacturer of Soda Ash, has been awarded the world-renowned 2012 Gold Quill Award for excellence in business communication, presented by the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC).
TCL was awarded a Gold Quill under the Communications management division for their project “Building a Chemtastic Community” which was aimed at engaging students from around the country and fostering their interest in Chemistry.
Sujit Patil, Head of Corporate Communication, Tata Chemicals Ltd., said, “The Gold Quill Awards program is one of the few opportunities for corporate communications professionals to have their work evaluated by an international panel of judges and recognized at a global level. The 2012 Gold Quill Award is special and underscores our ability to run effective national level campaigns that add substantially towards the positive image of our organization and the chemicals industry in general.”
“The Gold Quill Awards is unique in that it's the only program that celebrates excellence in communication on a global scale" says Dave Meyer, chair of the 2012 Gold Quill Awards. “The diversity of categories, entries and cultures has become the standard for the best and most effective sharing of thoughts and ideas in the world. It's also about much more than well-written words or beautiful results. Winners of the Gold Quill Awards need to demonstrate that they've added value to their organization by measuring their results and being strategic in the best sense of the word. Winners this year have shown that regardless of the economic issues or cultural challenges they've faced, the Gold standard of communication can have a tremendous impact."
This year’s competition received nearly 700 entries from 23 countries. Of these, 78 were selected to receive awards—24 Awards of Excellence, 53 Awards of Merit and one Student Award. The winners were honored at the Gold Quill Awards at the IABC 2012 World Conference in Chicago, USA.
The Gold Quill Award entries went through two rigorous rounds of judging by top senior communicators from around the world. The final selection was made by the Gold Quill Awards Blue Ribbon Panel of judges in March. To win the Gold Quill Award, Tata Chemicals competed with peers from 23 countries including: Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Ecuador, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, the Philippines, Russia, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, the U.K., the U.S. and Venezuela.
