KISSIMMEE, Fla., February 28, 2011 – Kissimmee Utility Authority’s 2009 annual report has received a gold ADDY award from the American Advertising Federation (AAF).

The award, given in the four-color annual report category, was presented Feb. 26 in Greenville, S.C.

The report – titled “Let it Shine” – shines a light on the utility’s partnerships with local agencies to help those in need during these difficult financial times. The report also features complete utility financial documents that can be viewed or downloaded. The report is available online at http://www.kua.com/Corporate/Press/Reports/2009/index.html.

The annual report was produced by KUA’s corporate communications department with assistance from graphic design firm Popcorn Initiative of Greenville and commercial photographer Ed McDonald of Longwood, Fla.

The ADDY Awards are the advertising industry’s largest and most representative competition, recognizing creative excellence and the very best advertising worldwide. The awards are unique among competitions because they include three rigorous levels of judging: local, regional and national/international.

The entry will now advance to the AAF Third District where it will compete with entries from three other states.

Founded in 1901, KUA (www.kua.com) is Florida’s sixth largest community-owned utility providing electric and telecommunication services to 64,000 customers in Osceola County, Fla.
