Robert F. Reed Technology Medal
Recognizing an outstanding engineer, scientist, inventor, or researcher in the graphic communications industry.
Nominations must be postmarked, faxed, or emailed by the deadline of November 1, 2013, click here for nomination guidelines.
Established in 1974, the Reed Technology Medal perpetuates the memory of Robert F. Reed (1905–1973), “Dean of Lithography,” whose contributions to the understanding of lithographic processes and materials were perhaps the most significant and important made by any man of his time. Past recipients of the Reed Medal include Richard McKrell, John Crosfield, John MacPhee, Robert Bassemir, Harold Gegenheimer, and Michael Bruno.
Nominations are judged by a small committee of past Reed Medal recipients and representatives of Printing Industries of America’s Ben Franklin Honor Society. The recipient is presented with an engraved and die-struck bronze medal at the Annual Technical Association of the Graphic Arts (TAGA) Annual Technical Conference Conference in March 23-26, in Fort Worth, Texas.
- A candidate must be a technically or scientifically oriented person who has worked as an engineer or a scientist in the graphic communications industry for a period of ten years or more.
- A candidate must have an outstanding record of technical and scientific accomplishments that measurably aided the scientific development of the graphic communications industry.
