San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) July 14, 2005

WestEd, a nonprofit research, development, and service agency, took high honors in the annual League of American Communications Professionals (LACP) Vision Awards competition. In a rigorous international competition, WestEd’s 2004 Annual Report garnered the gold award in the education category and the silver in the nonprofit category.

This year’s contest drew an unprecedented number of submissions, with more than 1,400 entries representing 17 countries. LACP’s announcement follows on the heels of last month’s news that the Association of Educational Publishers awarded several coveted top prizes to WestEd publications.

WestEd CEO Glen Harvey emphasized the agency’s commitment to quality. “These most recent awards offer further evidence that WestEd upholds the highest standards of excellence in research, development, and service. We are proud to join an elite cadre of organizations with an exceptional commitment to superior, effective publishing.”

The Vision Awards involve several hundred hours of judging on areas such as first impression, cover, creativity, message clarity, and information accessibility. The judging panel comprises communications and public relations experts practicing in the nation’s leading companies and nonprofit organizations.
