The FPRA Image Awards recognize the best in research, strategy, implementation nd execution in the public relations profession. Image Awards competitions are conducted in the spring at the chapter level and recognize the area’s best work in four main divisions:
Public Relations Programs
Collateral of Public Relations
Audio/Visual Tools of Public Relations
Student Projects in Public Relations
Generally, entries come from within the host chapter or its local community, but the competitions are not restricted to those entries. An entry consists of a two-page summary of the program, tool or project and supporting materials. Judges for the local competition are qualified, experienced, and accomplished PR professionals from a neighboring FPRA Chapter. Judges must have achieved their Accreditation in Public Relations.
After registering for this event, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

Having run her own PR firm for 10 years, Noelle Fox has learned many do’s and don’ts for managing a successful PR agency. In Going Solo, she’ll share her hard-won lessons with attendees.
