NEW YORK — The Georgia Ports Authority won the 2010 Bronze Anvil Award from the Public Relations Society of America for superior performance in the design and execution of an individual public relations tactic within a broader public relations campaign. Honorees were recognized June 3 during the Silver Anvil Awards Evening at the Equitable Tower in New York City.
The GPA received the award in the annual reports (up to $500 million) category for its fiscal year 2008 annual report, “Georgia’s Ports for Georgia’s People.” Through copy, charts and photography, the GPA’s annual report illustrates the ports’ importance to its stakeholders.
“We are proud of our record of excellence throughout our business sectors,” GPA Executive Director Curtis J. Foltz said. “National recognition for the third consecutive year signifies the outstanding work our public relations team continues to produce. The annual report plays an essential role in our marketing and communications efforts with the citizens of Georgia, our elected officials and business leaders throughout the world.”
The GPA’s external affairs department produced the annual report under the leadership of Senior Director of External Affairs Robert Morris. The GPA received its first Bronze Anvil Award for its fiscal year 2006 annual report, and was awarded the Bronze Anvil Award of Commendation for its fiscal year 2007 annual report.
