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.
Image Awards are divided into four main divisions:
- Public Relations Programs
- Printed Tools of Public Relations
- Audio/Visual/Online Tools of Public Relations
- Student Projects in Public Relations
Each entry division includes multiple categories.
When judges review an entry, seventy percent of the score will be taken from the two-page summary. Make sure to review the judging criteria to ensure that your entry is ready to submit and, if you’re an FPRA member, you can review past winning entries. Entrants do not have to be members of the FPRA Southwest Florida Chapter to enter the competition.
Rules for Entry
An entry must include a two-page summary, supporting documentation, a 50 word summary of the project and a brief organizational overview of your organization. The outline of the two-page summary should follow the general outline of a public relations project: Research/Situation Analysis; Objectives; Implementation; Evaluation and Budget.
