Orlando, FL (PRWEB) August 20, 2014
Axia Public Relations, a PR firm that specializes in national public relations campaigns, received recognition from the Florida Public Relations Association last week at its annual Golden Image Awards.
Axia Public Relations, including CEO Jason Mudd, APR, and account manager Marjorie Comer, received the Judges’ Award at the 2014 Golden Image Awards in Orlando, Florida on August 12.
FPRA presents the Judges’ Award to an outstanding entry that achieves maximum results while using a minimal amount of money. The award stems from an outstanding and impactful media pitch Axia developed for its client Brightway Insurance for Kiplinger’s Personal Finance. With continued follow up, Kiplinger’s included Brightway Insurance on its list of “8 Great Franchises.” Kiplinger’s published the list online and in print. Based on the franchise public relations campaign’s media coverage, Brightway received more than one million impressions, generating an estimated $218,356 in publicity value, and nearly 40 new leads from prospective franchisors. From that, Brightway landed its first Kentucky franchise store with more potential franchisees in the pipeline.
“Our company is only as great as our team,” said Mudd. “We have an amazing PR team dedicated to accomplishing exceptional PR results on behalf of our great clients. We are always thrilled when our industry peers recognize us for our work.”
This award is Comer’s first as a public relations professional and the firm’s ninth overall FPRA recognition.
FPRA conducts the annual Golden Image Awards to recognize outstanding public relations programs in Florida as well as to encourage and promote the development of public relations professionalism within the state. The Golden Image Awards include four divisions of categories: public relations programs, printed tools of public relations, audio/visual tools of public relations and student projects in public relations.
