KISSIMMEE, Fla., August 9, 2007 – Kissimmee Utility Authority (KUA) captured two statewide awards Tuesday evening in the 2007 Golden Image Awards, an annual competition sponsored by the Florida Public Relations Association.
The competition recognizes companies that exhibit and employ comprehensive public relations projects that meet the highest standards of excellence in four components of PR programming: research, planning, execution and evaluation.
A Golden Image Award is presented to the top-scoring entry in a respective category.
In the annual report category, KUA received a Golden Image Award for its 2006 annual report. The 26-page report, titled “What You Don’t See,” exposes the otherwise invisible aspects of electricity and the electricity business. The report is available online at http://www.kua.com/Corporate/Press/Reports/Index.aspx.
In the four-color brochure category, KUA received a Golden Image Award for its Cane Island Power Park tour brochure. The brochure was developed in 2006 to provide public orientation to the $263 million power generation facility. The brochure includes operating statistics, a detailed illustration of the facility and color photographs of the major components of the power plant.
The awards were presented as part of FPRA’s 69th annual conference in Sarasota, Fla.
KUA has earned 210 local, state, national and international communication awards for public relations programs, special events, community relations and publications since 1995.
Founded in 1901, KUA (www.kua.com) is Florida’s sixth largest community-owned utility providing electric and telecommunication services to 170,000 residents in five Central Florida counties.
