The Polly Bond Awards for Excellence in Communication
Inspired by beloved communicator and founding member Polly Bond, Episcopal Communicators recognizes outstanding work produced by our members.
Independent judges—professionals who are accomplished in the fields of journalism, writing, editing, graphic design, electronic media, and social media—judge entries submitted by our members. Judges also provide evaluations for each entry.
The process of reviewing, selecting and submitting your work for consideration is a benefit in itself. Receiving an award is not only a boost to the recipient, it can prompt recognition of excellence on the part of the communicator's employer. For those who do not receive an award, or wish to submit work, seeing the work done by his or her peers can be instructive and inspirational.
