Annual Report

2009 Institute of Food Technologists Annual Report: Connection. Communication. Collaboration.

Judge’s Comments: The International Institute of Food Technologists uses its Web site to present a 24-page report covering a full range of activities that travel the connected world and showcase the Institute’s skills in international communication and in collaboration with others for maximum professional and organizational advancement. Emphasis is on excellent writing and organization by topics and interests. Design is basic and devoid of artistic flourishes. The association takes every opportunity to feature large, sharp color photographs of individuals and groups. The result is immediate reader appreciation of the computer’s ability to outdo many printed association reports in image clarity and size.
The Institute probably would never be able to afford printed reports for distribution to so wide an audience. This solution is one that every association should consider. The days of costly printed reports are all but over. The report meets all requirements for publication excellence.

2010 Gold Award: ABC 2009 Year in Review

Annual Report

ABC 2009 Year in Review

Judge’s Comments: This report is tastefully bold, beautifully written, planned with precision, and designed throughout as a smart salute to its audience of builders and contractors. Consider the cover: A denim-clad arm clutches both a roll of construction plans and a blazingly yellow hard hat adorned with the association’s ABC logo. Rarely has an association publication captured the essence of its members’ work and professional life so neatly, so accurately, and so appealingly. The report is so cleverly crafted that the reader remains eager for more even after finishing it and knowing that he or she has been thoroughly briefed.
Photographs of members and association executives are ruggedly dynamic, with each face in sharp focus. Photos of tools of the trade are used discreetly throughout to provide handsome breaks in copy as needed. The Year in Review is sturdily constructed. Heavy glossy stock is used for both façade and inner walls. Associated Builders and Contractors has given its members a report that excels on all counts: Appearance, Style and Contents. It is targeted precisely to its member needs and interests, and it should be a highly effective tool in membership recruitment and retention. Used as an advocacy tool, it should have a warm reception on Capitol Hill and in statehouses.
