“There’s no ulterior motive behind this other than allowing our industry to blow off a little creative steam and have some fun,” said Bradley H. Smith, Director of Marketing at PR Newswire & Vintage Filings. “Every year, we produce an SEC deadline calendar, but rather than print up a 2014 calendar of bland or uninspired clip art, we’re inviting industry professionals to submit their own artwork. Each winner will get their own month.”

To enhance the community aspect of this project, the submissions will be juried by industry leaders including:

  • Jeffrey D. Morgan, CEO of the National Investor Relations Institute
  • Mary Beth Kissane, 2013 USA IR Awards Lifetime Achievement recipient, Senior Director, WalekPeppercomm
  • Broc Romanek, Editor at
  • Paula Dubberly , former Deputy Director, SEC Division of Corporation Finance
  • Bradley H. Smith, Director of Marketing, PR Newswire & Vintage Filings

“Many of us have shot that ‘one great photo,’ built beautiful furniture, painted wonderful landscapes or even knit a fantastic sweater, but we don’t have many opportunities to share our efforts. We invite the issuer community to disclose a hidden talent and enjoy the recognition of your peers,” continued Smith. “I am excited to see what creativity is disclosed by IR and compliance professionals.”

Once printed, the calendar will be available free at industry events.
