Radiance Awards

The Radiance Awards recognize outstanding strategic public relations programs by Florida practitioners and organizations. The statewide awards recognize the highest levels of professional achievement. The awards highlight PR campaigns and tactics that demonstrate excellence in research, planning, implementation and evaluation, as well as individuals who have shown great commitment to the profession.

Submissions for the 2020 PRSA Sunshine Radiance Awards are now closed. Winning entries will be announced virtually in late July/early August due to the postponement of the 2020 PRSA Sunshine District Conference. For a complete list of winning entries from 2019, click here.

To ensure transparency in the judging process, PRSA Sunshine District’s Radiance Awards are scored by a PRSA chapter outside of the Sunshine District. Below are the winners of the Radiance Awards from years prior.
