FPRA has a two-tier awards program for submitted works. The Image awards program is administered on a local level as the Local Image Awards and on a statewide level as the Golden Image Awards. Members are encouraged to enter the Local Image Awards, conducted by the individual chapters, although that is not a prerequisite for entering the Golden Image Awards. Entrants do receive valuable feedback from the Local Image judges that can guide any improvements they may wish to make to their entry before submitting it to the Golden Image Awards.

In addition to the Image Awards programs, FPRA bestows several awards on deserving members each year recognizing them for their leadership traits and contributions to the Association.
