The Lewis Award: A Symbol of lifetime achievement
Sponsored by the Ben Franklin Honor Society.
Established in 1950, the Lewis Memorial Lifetime Achievement Award is recognized throughout the graphic arts industry as the highest honor awarded to an individual in our business.
Named for Abraham Lewis, founder of Graphic Arts Monthly, and his sons Louis and Myron, the award pays homage to business leaders who have gone far beyond standard obligations to become a significant force in shaping the business of printed communications. Nominating an individual provides an opportunity to honor someone you believe has made a major, long-term contribution to and has had a significant impact on our industry.
The award recipient will be selected by a panel of industry leaders and is honored before hundreds of peers at Printing Industries of America’s Fall Meetings November 13-15 in Pittsburgh, PA.
