Quotes, the Public Relations (PR) club at UCF overseen by associate instructor Lindsay Hudock, took home a Florida Public Relations Association (FPRA) Orlando Area Chapter Image Award in every category.

FPRA is the largest and oldest association of public relations professionals in the United States. More than 1,500 individuals belong to FPRA, working together to enhance and promote the public relations profession throughout Florida and the nation.

Conducted annually, the Image Awards competition held by FPRA provides PR practitioners a platform to distinguish themselves in their home markets.

The Image Awards also works to give applicants insights for entering their work, if they choose, into FPRA’s statewide competition – the Golden Image Awards. The Golden Image Awards have become a standard of public relations excellence in Florida.

Both these award competitions include four divisions: Public Relations Programs, Printed Tools of Public Relations, Digital Tools of Public Relations and Student Projects in Public Relations. Within these divisions are multiple categories.
