MAITLAND, Fla. (August 23, 2016) – Just a few hours after America’s elite gymnasts claimed their historic victory in Brazil on August 9, Curley & Pynn (C&P) was honored for its own balancing act of budgets, deadlines and creativity during the Golden Image Awards at the Florida Public Relations Association’s 78th Annual Conference.

The firm was among the 2016 winners of this prestigious statewide awards competition, which recognizes top public relations campaigns and tools that demonstrate excellence in innovation, planning and design.

C&P earned three Golden Image Awards, presented to the top-scoring entry in each of the competition’s four categories:

  • A Golden Image Award was presented for the Florida High Tech Corridor Council’s 20th Anniversary Promotion, which leveraged The Corridor’s anniversary to increase awareness of the organization among business, government and civic leaders through a multi-media approach.
  • A Golden Image Award was also earned for production of The Corridor’s annual magazine, florida.HIGH.TECH 2015, designed to increase awareness of the region’s growing high tech industry by showcasing the stories of people and companies driving diverse clusters of innovation.
  • As well, the firm was granted a Golden Image Award for its targeted publicity strategy promoting the launch of National Airlines’ passenger service between Orlando, San Juan and Windsor, Ontario.  With only three weeks for planning and implementation, C&P exceeded objectives by more than 300 percent.

C&P also received an Award of Distinction for its magazine, For The Win, part of a campaign celebrating the firm’s 30th anniversary.

“These awards are a testament to the dedication of our talented team and our strategic approach to meeting client goals,” said , president and founding partner of C&P.  “It’s an honor for our hard work to be recognized among Florida’s best public relations programs.”
