About the OVATION Awards
The OVATION Awards began in 1985 when Master Communicator, Ken Cherney was asked to lead a team from the IABC/Toronto chapter to examine the existing awards program, which was then called the Toronto Accolades Program. After some consideration, the team determined the rules and regulations upon which the OVATION Awards program was based.
The IABC/Toronto OVATION Awards offers the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) communications profession an opportunity to present its best work. It celebrates and promotes excellence from the communications profession and fosters a greater appreciation of it.
