Gainesville, Fla. – The Institute for Public Relations conducted the first global Infographic Design Competition for students, focusing on PR research. IPR, along with the Executive Board of the PRSSA Chapter at the University of Florida, chose four winning designs that best communicated insights from IPR’s Signature Studies. The two grand-prize winners were Danielle Riley, University of Florida, with “The Social CEO: CEO Communication Styles,” and a team from Brigham Young University including McKann Thomas, Brady Quinn, McKenzie Draper and Emily Sopp with “Diversity in the Business World.”
The judges evaluated each infographic design based on content, creativity and visual appeal. IPR also chose two runner-up entries created by Aisha Qasem from Zayed University in Dubai and a team from Brigham Young University including Megan Allen, Brooke Tait and Preston Williamson.
The Second Annual Infographic Design Competition will begin in October 2016.
