Who should enter?
Any Florida-based business, organization or individual actively involved in promoting the various products and experiences that make up Florida’s tourism industry may enter the Flagler Awards. That includes hotels, resorts, inns, condos and other accommodators; restaurants; museums, parks, gardens, theme parks, tours and other attractions; rental car companies, airlines and other transportation companies; destination marketing organizations such as Convention & Visitors Bureaus, Tourist Development Councils, Chambers of Commerce and others; visitor centers; associations; non-profit and not-for-profit organizations; private individuals; as well as government agencies involved in tourism marketing (parks and recreation, fishing and wildlife, etc.). You do not have to be a VISIT FLORIDA Partner to enter.
At the direction of their client, entries may also be prepared and submitted by professional marketing companies or individuals involved with the creation and implementation of the entry. This includes advertising, public relations, design, web and other marketing agencies. It should be noted, however, that awards for winning entries are presented to the tourism or hospitality client for whom the work was performed, not the submitting marketing agency.
What should I enter?
You can enter any marketing materials, programs, events or activities used during the 2018 calendar year to promote a Florida tourism product, service or experience to visitors. At least some part of the entry (planning, design, implementation) must have occurred in 2018 to be eligible.
