The GBC is a winner in The Communicator Awards 2006 Print Competition, an international competition that recognizes outstanding work in the communication field.
The GBC won the Award of Distinction in the Communication Awareness Program category for its “Bridging the Gap” program. The Award of Distinction is awarded for projects that exceed industry standards in design or communication skills. Approximately 18 percent of the entries won this award.
Entries were judged by industry professionals who look for companies and individuals whose talent exceeds a high standard of excellence and whose work serves as a benchmark for the industry. There were 5,214 entries from throughout the United States and several foreign countries.
“‘Bridging the Gap’, one of three top priority initiatives of the GBC, was designed to evolve the business culture of greater Baltimore by developing and fostering relationships between majority and minority and women-owned businesses,” said GBC president Donald C. Fry.
“Since the latest steps to create an inventory of minority owned businesses, the program has increased its visibility in the community and allowed majority and minority owned businesses to gain access to new markets, by assisting businesses to easily identify minority owned businesses to conduct business with,” said Fry.
Other award winners for Maryland included GBC members CareFirst, Constellation Energy, GBMC, Johns Hopkins U., Applied Physics Lab, and T. Rowe Price.
