SAN DIEGO - July 11, 2011 - League of American Communications. Professionals LLC (LACP), an organization dedicated to supporting, recognizing and advancing excellence in the practice of professional communications, today released the results of this year's annual report competition, the 2010 Vision Awards.
“The 2010 Vision Awards drew an unprecedented number of submissions representing a broad range of industries and organizational sizes,” said Tyson Heyn, Principal of LACP. “More than 5,000 entries were submitted, representing upwards of two-dozen countries and 800 entities, so competition was exceptionally tough. Winners demonstrated an outstanding focus on shareholders, their interests, and their need to understand the strategic and tactical decisions their companies are making.”
Through several hundred hours of judging, LACP identified winners within peer-level competition classes. Competition classes were established to create the most level playing field possible between entries. They were determined according to company size, annual revenue, and other pertinent factors. Scores were derived according to a proprietary judging system developed by LACP, which assigns point values to various criteria of an entry. A composite score, based on a 100-point scale, was then determined by summing the results of all judging criteria.
