2024 IABC Capital Awards

We are communicators.
We turn messy ideas into clear concepts.

As communicators, we take pride in turning vague and messy ideas into clear, tangible concepts. Through a creative and iterative process, we take those ideas and communicate them to audiences in a way that resonates and calls them to take action. 

IABC Edmonton’s Capital Awards is Northern Alberta’s premier awards program for communications professionals. The Capital Awards program is your chance to be recognized for your keen thinking, hard work and creative brilliance. Join the ranks of Edmonton’s renowned communicators and enter your work!

Collaboration. Brainstorming. Editing. Rebooting.

Each year, our beloved Capital Awards program launches to the tune of a creative theme, something that communicators and marketers can truly identify with and see themselves in.

Our friends at zag have helped us translate this process into a legacy visual identity that will resonate with OUR unique audience of communications and marketing professionals.

This year, we are excited to build off the new look and feel of IABC’s Capital Awards program by introducing our 2024 theme: Bridging the Gap. Our industry is all about building connections and exploring both sides of a conversation. Between black and white exists a nuanced area of grey comprised of fuzzy edges and blurred lines. It’s typically here where solutions come to life and the connection
between a problem and its solution comes into focus.
