Image & Communicator Awards 2022

FPRA Image Award Deadline (LOCAL): February 20th, 11:59 CST
FPRA Golden Image Award Deadline (STATE): May 13, 2022 at 11:59pm EST (10:59pm CST)
FPRA Image Award Ceremony: Tuesday, April 12th (Time TBD)

The Florida Public Relations Association’s (FPRA) Image Awards competition is the precursor to FPRA’s Golden Image Awards.

Conducted annually, the Image Awards competition provides PR practitioners an excellent platform to be recognized in their home markets for their outstanding public relations tools and programs.

The Image Awards also works to give entrants insights for entering their work, if they choose, into FPRA’s statewide competition: the Golden Image Awards. The Golden Image Awards have become a standard of public relations excellence in Florida.

The Image Awards competition mirrors the Golden Image Awards, but is held on a local level, as opposed to statewide. Both these award competitions include four divisions: Public Relations Programs, Printed Tools of Public Relations, Digital Tools of Public Relations and Student Projects in Public Relations. Within these divisions are multiple categories.

To qualify for judging, an entry must incorporate sound public relations research and planning. Entries also must meet the highest standard of production, execution and evaluation of results and budget.

In addition to local Image Award recipients, the Northwest Florida Coast Chapter of the Florida Public Relations Association annually recognizes local public relations professionals, whether a member of FPRA or not, who demonstrate outstanding communication skills in three different categories.

There is no cost or submission limit associated with the Community Communicator Awards. Additionally, nominators nor nominees are required to be members of FPRA. These community-nominated awards are voted on by a confidential committee of public relations professionals. Nominees will be recognized and recipients will be announced Tuesday, April 12th at the NWFL Coast Chapter Image Awards Reception at J. Leon Gallery in Miramar Beach.

Deadline for nominations is February 20th at 11:59pm CST.
