Local Image Awards are held annually to recognize outstanding public relations programs in Southwest Florida. So, even though it is months away, your Image committee is excited and already making plans for the professional and social event of the year…and so should you!

Put your projects under the microscope and consider everything you do to be a potential award-winning entry. We know it takes time and effort but we want you to showcase your very best work

  • In order to enter, some part of the project must take place between January 1, 2010 and mid-March 2011 (end date will be announced shortly).
  • Write your plan now. Set your goals (broad) and objectives (precise). What are you trying to accomplish? You can have qualitative and quantitative objectives, but they must be specific and measurable.
  • Organize support materials. Keep a file for notes, surveys and documentation. Start saving copies of results, proof of research, before and after samples, e-mail correspondence or feedback, media clips, letters/notes, reference materials, photos, etc. Basically, collect everything that will help someone understand your project and provide back up to your two-page summary. And for 2011, let’s make every effort to save work product electronically!
