Pesel & Carr has won the 2022 International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) Gold Quill award for our work with the William Buckland Foundation (WBF).
WBF collaborates with not-for-profit organisations and other philanthropic funders to address causes of social and economic disadvantage, focussing on “improving the lives of Victorians in need”
Over the past few years most of us turned to online spaces – this includes organisations in the not-for-profit sector, many of which were struggling due to COVID.
In response, WBF decided to publish its first ever digital annual report.
A digital report met its audience where they were at. Going digital also provided the perfect opportunity to modernise the look and feel of the report.
The report highlighted WBF’s work and ongoing philanthropy, celebrated grant recipients’ successes and acted a showcase for future grantees.
“The William Buckland Foundation supports organisations that make a difference in the lives of disadvantaged Victorians.
“It was wonderful to work with the Trustees and team to deliver and broaden the reach for a report that demonstrated the beneficial impact of philanthropy,” said Barbara Pesel, Managing Director at Pesel & Carr.
William Buckland Foundation Lead Ferdi Hepworth acknowledged and sent a congratulations to Pesel & Carr.
“We’re thrilled with the new look of our annual report and the feedback from our Trustee and grant applicants has been extremely positive. Seeking to amplify the reach of projects and learnings, we’ve also hit another digital milestone – an animated online digital report.”
The IABC has recognised the work of communication professionals for more than 40 years and are acknowledged as one of the most prestigious awards programs in the industry.
The Gold Quill Awards were judged by a panel of international leaders in the public relations profession and industry sector representatives. This year, our very own Barbara Pesel chaired a blue-ribbon panel.
