Local Image Awards 2016:
Think strategically!

Even though the deadline for Local Image entries is three months away, your local Image team is preparing for the 2016 Local Image Awards. And so should you!
 Look at your work product and think about its potential for being submitted for a Local Image Award. As you plan or participate in projects from January 2015 through the competition deadline of March 4, 2016, try to determine if it will meet the Image standards. Also, study the Image Award categories – maybe the special event didn’t meet all the objectives you set, but the speech you wrote for the CEO to give during the event exceeded expectations and changed the attitude of the audience. Be smart – always look at all the elements of a campaign and try to find the perfect fit. Also, entries this year will be submitted electronically, so collect and organize your support materials digitally, which will make it much easier to prepare and submit your entry in March.
If you have never entered before, need a little bit of guidance or a nudge, then you might just need an Image Buddy! Your Local Image Committee has seasoned “Image Experts” who will be there to offer encouragement and advice on how to submit an award-winning entry. We can give you one-on-one help with a trusted and knowledgeable “buddy” – so you will feel more comfortable about asking questions and make entering Local Image a little less daunting.
If you have any questions about the Image entry process or Image Buddy program, please contact Vicki Moreland at vbmoreland@flylcpa.com or 239-590-4502.
