KISSIMMEE, Fla., March 1, 12:30 pm – In recognition of its creative excellence, Kissimmee Utility Authority’s 2002 annual report received gold and silver ADDY® awards at a ceremony held on February 27 at Hard Rock Live in Universal Studios CityWalk.
Sponsored by the Orlando club of the American Advertising Federation (AAF), the ADDY® awards are the advertising industry’s largest and most representative competition, recognizing creative excellence and the very best advertising worldwide. The ADDY® Awards are unique among competitions because it includes three rigorous levels of judging: local, regional and national/international.
KUA’s report — titled “The Power of U” — features a financial summary of 2002 as well as a four-chapter narrative on the utility’s core business of delivering efficient, reliable, affordable electric service to the residents of Osceola County. The report also features interviews and photos of community leaders and area business owners.
The annual report was produced by KUA with assistance from graphic designer Popcorn Initiative and commercial photographer Ed McDonald. Popcorn Initiative received a gold ADDY® award in the 4-color annual report division; Ed McDonald Photography received a silver ADDY® award in the color photography division.
The entry will now advance to the AAF Fourth District where it will compete with entries from Florida, U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.
Founded in 1901, KUA is Florida’s sixth largest community-owned utility providing electric, water, and telecommunication services to 170,000 residents in five Central Florida counties.
