CONRIC PR & Marketing was honored with writing accolades at the Florida Magazine Association’s (FMA’s) recent Charlie Awards ceremony, held Sept. 23 in Orlando for the magazine Res Gestae. Published by CONRIC on behalf of the Lee County Bar Association (LCBA), Res Gestae won silver for Writing Excellence – Best Column for an Association, Trade or Technical magazine. The “Community Connection” column was judged on writing excellence by impartial academics and industry experts across the United States.
The “Community Connection” is a series of columns written by CONRIC’s communications editor, Sara Fitzpatrick Comito, for Res Gestae. The column focused monthly on a Lee County not-for-profit organization to identify causes worthy of attorneys’ and judges’ philanthropic efforts. Consideration for the Best Column category requires the submission of a regularly appearing column by the same writer from three separate issues.
Sara Fitzpatrick Comito said, “Those in the legal community often have resources and a philanthropic spirit that can be put to good use for important causes. With so many worthy organizations in Southwest Florida, it’s gratifying to put a big spotlight on some that may otherwise get lost in the shuffle, and to be recognized by the FMA for effective storytelling on their behalf.”
Connie Ramos-Williams said, “Members of the LCBA have a strong reputation for getting involved and giving back to the community in which they serve. Res Gestae is a perfect vehicle to connect its readers to causes that improve the quality of life in Southwest Florida.”
This is the third year in a row CONRIC has been awarded a prestigious Charlie Award by the FMA. In 2014, the company won silver in the Best Overall Writing category for Res Gestae. In 2015, the Athletic Guide section of B&G, the alumni magazine for Bishop Verot Catholic High School, was singled out for a bronze award for Best Department Design – Association & Trade/Technical.
The Florida Magazine Association awards program has recognized excellence in magazines that serve communities, trades and organizations throughout Florida, as well as niche readerships across the United States, since 1957.
