The Golden Image Awards competition is conducted annually by the Florida Public Relations Association. The awards recognize outstanding public relations programs in Florida and encourage and promote the development of ethical and effective public relations professionalism in our state.

What motivates a company or individual to enter the competition? It is the sense of accomplishment and pride when your work it recognized by your peers. It is a time for you and your company to shine in front of public relations and marketing professionals from across the state. If you already submitted an entry on the local level, you have done a lot of the work already. Now, you can now tweak your entries and re-submit for the state awards.
