Platinum a Good Color for Platte River Power Annual Report

FORT COLLINS, COLO - Platte River Power Authority has received a Platinum Award from the League of American Communications Professionals (LACP) for the utility's 2007 Annual Report. The Platinum Award was given for the highest level of achievement in LACP's international 2007 Vision Awards competition. Only four percent of the competition’s entries received a Platinum Award.

Ratings are based upon an evaluation point system, which considers a number of factors measuring the effectiveness of communications materials.

More than 3,000 entries were received representing upwards of 20 countries. Winners demonstrated an outstanding focus on target publics, their interests and their need to understand the key messages being communicated.
