KISSIMMEE, Fla., June 20, 2007 – Kissimmee Utility Authority’s 2006 annual report has been chosen as one of the top 100 entries in the 22nd Annual AR100 Award Show competition, the country’s largest and most prestigious design competition for annual reports.
The Black Book AR100 Award Show honors the nation’s top 100 annual reports, chosen by a panel of award-winning designers. The panel considers excellence of design, functionality, innovation and brand awareness. Special honors are also awarded for outstanding illustration, photography, design, printing, paper and typography.
KUA’s 26-page annual report, titled “What You Don’t See,” exposes the otherwise invisible aspects of electricity and the electricity business and sheds light on the efforts made on a daily basis by the utility to deliver services to its customers in Kissimmee.
The report is available online at http://www.kua.com/Corporate/Press/Reports/Index.aspx.
All 100 winners will be published in The Black Book AR100 Award Show book, scheduled for publication in October. The book is circulated to over 15,000 corporate communicators and will be available for purchase at bookstores and online.
KUA’s 2005 annual report was also recognized in the competition.
