Please note that IABC London is taking a purposeful pause with Virtuoso Awards in 2019.

The decision to pause the Virtuoso Awards follows a steady decline in entries over the past few years and feedback from our stakeholders on a desire for change to the program. We are taking your feedback seriously and are now focusing our efforts on a thorough research and input process.

There are three main pillars to our research strategy:

  • Stakeholder engagement and feedback
  • Peer review
  • Historical analysis

Stakeholder engagement and feedback

Stakeholder engagement and feedback pillar is the backbone of our strategy. We will provide you with multiple opportunities to share your input on project-based awards programming, from a digital survey to a special event!

We hope you will partner with us by providing your feedback. At any time, please feel welcome to email us at with any input, questions or suggestions.

Peer review

A simultaneous peer review is being conducted to examine best practices, trends and challenges for project-based awards programs being offered by other IABC chapters. We want to engage with our partners across the country and around the globe to learn from them. This will include consulting the national Silver Leaf Awards program and IABC International’s Gold Quill Awards program.

Historical analysis

Finally, our committee is conducting a historical analysis of IABC London’s Virtuoso Awards program. We are examining changes to the awards program over the years, including evolution of the judging process and recognition of winners.

Do you have any input, suggestions or questions you want to share? Please email at any time.
