KISSIMMEE, Fla., May 6, 2008 – Kissimmee Utility Authority’s 2006 annual report has received a gold ADDY® award from the Fourth District of the American Advertising Federation (AAF). The report previously earned a gold ADDY® from the Orlando club of the AAF.
The district award, given in the four-color annual report category, was presented May 3 in St. Petersburg.
Conducted annually by the AAF, the ADDY® Awards is a three-tier competition recognizing creative excellence and the very best advertising worldwide. Concurrently, all across the country, local entrants vie for recognition as the very best in their markets. At the second tier, local winners compete against other winners in one of 14 District competitions. District winners are then forwarded to the third tier, the national ADDY® Awards competition.
KUA’s 26-page annual 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/2006/kua06intro.html.
The annual report was produced by KUA’s corporate communications division with assistance from graphic design firm Popcorn Initiative of Orlando and commercial photographer Ed McDonald of Longwood.
The annual report will now advance to the national level of competition. Winners will be announced on June 10 in Atlanta, Ga.
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.
