IBA10 CeremonyThe full-text of the most of the Stevie Award-winning entries in The 2010 International Business Awards have now been published at, and there are three reasons why you should read them.  If you're not familiar with the IBAs, it is the all-inclusive Stevie Awards competition that's open to all organizations worldwide.  The "international Stevies" typically receive nominations from organizations in more than 40 nations, in categories ranging from Executive of the Year and Most Innovative Company of the Year to web awards, marketing awards, public relations awards, and more.

The awards were presented at a ceremony in Istanbul, Turkey back on September 27 that was attended by close to 300 executives from more than 20 nations.

You'll find the complete lists of honorees, with links to the full text of Stevie-winning nominations, through the following links.

Here are three great reasons why you should explore and read these winning nominations:

  1. Every organization should be adept at summarizing and publicly expressing their achievements, and these are great examples of organizations that have done this well
  2. There are household names galore among this year's Stevie Winners, including Acer, BASF, ING, and Procter & Gamble, among others, but there are many more companies, executives, products, and initiatives that you've probably never heard of, whose stories will surprise, inform and enlighten you
  3. If you're planning to enter the IBAs in 2011, the winning entries from 2010 are great models on which to base the structure and tone of your own entries.
