Franklin Award for Distinguished Service
The Franklin Award for Distinguised Service, presented for over 60 years, honors a distinguished recipient for their positive role in American society and serves to focus national attention on the depth and breadth of our industry. Past recipients include several U.S. presidents, diplomats, military leaders, scientists, authors, artists and business leaders. 

Luminaire Awards for Best in Communications
The Luminaire Award is presented to an individual in recognition of their positive contribution and service within the media and graphic communications industries. The Luminaire Award recognizes excellence in media production in publishing, advertising, print production, marketing, emerging digital media, art direction, education, printing, finishing, paper and equipment supply. 

Innovation Excellence Award
In 2016 the Franklin Luminaire Awards inaugurates a new award of distinction - the Innovation Excellence Award. The Innovation Excellence Award is granted to a company or individual in graphic and visual communications that is pioneering, pacesetting, and advancing new technologies. Each generation of our industry has developed or adopted new technology and we seek to recognize our innovators moving us into the future.

Zenger Community Service Medal
The prestigious Zenger Community Service Medal is named for John Peter Zenger, an influential printer in American history. Zenger was a New York City-based printer whose arrest, imprisonment, trial and acquittal in 1735 laid the foundation for freedom of the press in Colonial America. The Medal honors a graphic communications professional who has demonstrated exceptional community service -
inspiring us to be more than we are, making our community a better place to live or serving our country in ways that make us proud.
