2019 Local Image Awards

The Local Image Awards competition is conducted annually by the Southwest Florida Chapter of FPRA to recognize outstanding public relations programs and to encourage the development of public relations professionals. By recognizing the very best examples of innovation, planning and design, the Image Awards encourage and enhance public relations professionalism in the communities that our members serve. Our awards ceremony is the culmination of award winners’ hard work and allows our chapter to celebrate the accomplishments of its members in a fun and semi-formal atmosphere.

Submissions are now closed for 2019, but join us for the celebration!

Our 2019 Local Image Awards ceremony will be held Thursday, April 18 from 6-9 p.m. at the historic Burroughs Home & Gardens in Fort Myers.  This year’s event will feature a sophisticated evening of champagne, live music and a full seated dinner, as well as our awards ceremony to honor our Local Image and Chapter Award winners.
