Nothing distinguishes your work and brings recognition to you and your team
more than honors from the 2017 Vision Awards, the most popular competition
for annual reports, sustainability reports, CSRs, online reports and related media.
From Abbott to Zurich Financial, companies large and small compete against peers
of similar size and means to earn esteem for their achievements. In fact, entries
from upwards of two dozen countries competed in the Vision Awards last year alone.
Here’s your chance to earn recognition for your hard work in communications.
The 2017 Vision Awards provides a platform for communications professionals to
demonstrate the value they’re delivering to their organizations and clients.
So whether you support a corporation, non-profit, educational institution, or
governmental entity, LACP’s 2017 Vision Awards Competition is a chance to have
the high quality of your work validated in one of the most respected competition forums
in the world.

When Must I Have Created My Report?
It must be for the most recent fiscal year.
How Should I Submit My Entry? Entries can be
submitted in both hard- and soft-copy formats. The preferred soft-copy format is PDF. Contact us if you need to use another entry
medium. Cover letters are welcome but not required. Only one annual report needs to be provided for judging.
Can I Upload My Entire Entry? Yes! We can allot up to 2 gigabytes of online storage for receiving your reports, cover letters &
other materials. Just send in your entry form, and we’ll e-mail you a link. Or tell us via online chat at www.lacp.com/support
How Does Judging Occur? Award results are based on the judging of submissions within peer-level competition classes. They are
determined according to company size, annual revenue, and other pertinent factors. Scoring is derived according to LACP’s proprietary
judging system, which grades various criteria of an entry. A composite score is then determined. Your Results Kit will provide full details
on the judging methodology as well as feedback on your report.
Should I Include a Cover Letter? While not mandatory, it does help judges better understand an entry’s goals, target
audience, messaging, development, and success metrics.
How Do Competition Classes Work? All entrants are required to enter the General Competition—this is where the heart of
judging takes place, primarily among organizations of similar size and means. If you believe your entry stands out in any of the other
achievement categories (e.g. Most Creative, Most Improved), you can enter those separate competitions and contend against all other
entrants solely on that category’s single criterion. “Special
Achievement” categories include regional awards, as well.
Are Late Entries Accepted? Yes, through 9 June 2018. We may be
able to make special arrangements for exceptional circumstances—
