The Collier County Supervisor of Elections office was honored with the Grand All Image Award at the Florida Public Relations Association (FPRA) Southwest Florida Chapter Image Awards ceremony last week.
The Grand All Image Award is presented to the best public relations program in Southwest Florida and was awarded for the elections office’s “Election Ready” public information campaign which aimed to educate voters on how they could prepare for the 2016 Election Cycle.
The elections office was bestowed an Image Award for the “Election Ready” campaign and an Award of Distinction for their “Countdown to Enterprise” communications campaign which helped notify voters about the office’s relocation to Enterprise Avenue.
In order to qualify for judging, Image Award entries must incorporate sound public relations research and planning and must meet the highest standard of production, implementation and evaluation of results within the means of a budget.
Awards of Distinction are presented to entries that meet the standards of excellence set forth by the panel of judges and an Image Award may be presented to the top-scoring entry in each category if the entry meets predetermined criteria of excellence set by the panel of judges.
“We are extremely honored to have been recognized for our efforts in preparing voters for the upcoming elections and I am very proud of my staff who worked hard on both of these projects,” said Collier’s Supervisor of Elections, Jennifer J. Edwards.
