Best of the IBA Awards

The Best of the IBA Awards are five best-of-competition prizes that are awarded to the organizations that submit the best body of work to the competition, in their own name or in the names of one or more clients. 

The winners of these prizes are awarded Grand Stevie Award trophies

Organization of the Year:   Will be awarded to the organization with the highest overall point total in the IBAs.  The organization may be large or small, public or private, for profit or non-profit.

Most Honored Public Relations Agency:  Will be awarded to the PR agency network or shop with the highest overall point total, earned in its own name or in the name of one or more clients.

Most Honored Marketing Agency:  Will be awarded to the marketing services agency network or shop with the highest overall point total, earned in its own name or in the name of one or more of its clients.

Top 10: Will be awarded to the 10 organizations with the most award points in the 2018 IBAs.

These awards cannot be applied for directly.  Winners will be determined by a points system based on the total number of awards won in the IBAs, with a  Gold Stevie win counting for 3 points, a Silver Stevie for 2 points, and a Bronze Stevie counting for 1.5.  Points cannot be counted more than once in calculating Best of the ABA winners (i.e., points won by an agency in its client's name cannot be counted a second time in the agency's name).
