2023 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.

This year, 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.

With that, we officially launch IABC Edmonton’s 2023 Capital Awards program with a brand new look and feel.
