About the Image Awards

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, and 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.

How to Enter the Image Awards

Image Award contests will open again in February 2024. To enter a local Image competition, click on the name of the FPRA chapter in or near your market in the Chapter Entry Forms section of this page. You may enter as many local competitions as you would like. For details about when and where the awards presentation will be for the local Image competition you have entered, look for the Image information box on the chapter entry form.

FPRA members can view winning Golden Image entries dating all the way back to 2004. To see past winners, log in to the FPRA site and select Golden Image Awards under the Members tab.
