The graphic communications industry’s only award honoring the
outstanding contributions of women.
Sponsored by Printing Industries of America’s Ben Franklin Honor Society.
Nominations must be postmarked, faxed, or emailed by June 13, 2016.
Why Nominate Someone?
Recognize a woman who has displayed outstanding dedication to the industry. Berber Award recipients join over thirty years of outstanding women from the graphic communications industry, such as Laura Lawton-Forsyth, Diane Romano, Sue Baylin, Laura Gale, and Betty Maul. An engraved plaque is presented to the recipient to commemorate her accomplishments.
The Berber Award will be presented at Printing Industries of America’s Fall Administrative Meetings, November 18-20 in Kansas City, MO. This forum hosts an impressive audience of industry leaders, including boards of directors and committee members from Printing Industries of America, its Ben Franklin Honor Society, and the Print and Graphics Scholarship Foundation (PGSF).
- A candidate must have worked in the graphic communications industry for ten years or more.
- A candidate must have an outstanding record of accomplishments that demonstrate her unusual contribution toward the development of the graphic communications industry; such contributions could be in the form of extraordinary leadership, direction, and/or support of programs or projects that have furthered the interests of the industry.
- A candidate’s activities must have extended over a period of time, and her contribution should not be confined to a single project, development, or program.
More consideration will be given to candidates with significant volunteer work in the graphic communications field or whose accomplishments have been outside of their job description. Previous winners are not eligible for a second award. Candidates do not have to be Printing Industries of America members.
