In 1957, FPRA held its first Golden Image Awards program to celebrate excellence in public relations. Today the Golden Image Awards have become a standard of public relations excellence.
Winners of this prestigious awards competition demonstrate the very best examples of innovation, planning and design.
FPRA’s Golden Image Awards program is conducted annually. Many of the entrants for this program participate in FPRA’s local Image Awards competitions. Participation in the Image Awards is not a requirement to enter the Golden Image Awards competition.
