2017 Music City Gold Pen Awards Event Dazzles at Noah Liff Opera Center

IABC Nashville’s annual awards program honors the best in communications!

Under the soaring glass canopy of the Ragsdale Family Grand Lobby at the Noah Liff Opera Center in west Nashville, communications professionals from across Middle Tennessee were honored with gold for their excellence in corporate, government, higher education, and community communications.

“It’s said that opera is the highest form of art because it combines so many elements – complicated orchestrations as well as soaring melodies, vocals, acting, dancing, and set design,” said Tom Kenley, IABC Nashville chapter president. “So, this is an appropriate place to celebrate your award-winning projects and programs, woven together to create communications with impact.”

The evening awards program is an annual opportunity for IABC Nashville to recognize the often-unsung heroes who write, edit, create, and bring to life the many programs, special events, and powerful stories that punctuate life across Middle Tennessee. The chapter is honored to offer a platform to recognize excellence in communications, and celebrate those who turn their ideas into action, and offer hope and celebration.

Award winning WSMV-TV Channel 4 News Investigative Reporter Alanna Autler served as the celebrity host. And in addition, the evening would not have been possible without the generous sponsorships from The Creative Group, a Robert Half Company, and photographer Bernadette Ruby.

Of the 40 communications entries submitted, there were a total of 26 winning entries, 15 awards of excellence, and 11 awards of merit. Judging was handled by IABC chapter members in Tulsa, Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, South Carolina, and Kansas City.

IABC Nashville is proud of its tradition in honoring excellence in communications, and providing a platform to those within the professional, who are making a difference in their communities.
