The AACOM 2014 Excellence in Communications (EIC) Awards program is now accepting entries. The awards will be presented during the Marketing and Communications Advisory Council (MAC) meeting at the AACOM 2014 Annual Conference in Washington, DC. The EIC ‘Best in Show’ award will be presented at the AACOM Awards Banquet on April 4.

AACOM’s EIC Award program was created to recognize and share the outstanding marketing, media relations, writing, and design efforts undertaken by the nation’s colleges of osteopathic medicine. Each year, dozens of submissions are reviewed by an expert panel of judges who evaluate the pieces based on creativity, concept, content, design and outcomes, as well as superiority of writing, editing and final production quality. Each entry must have an objective related to the mission of the submitting osteopathic medical college.

If you are interested in participating, please reach out to your school’s communications department to coordinate submitting your entries. All entries are due by Friday, January 24. For more information, contact Lindsey Jurd at
