GLGA to Recognize Outstanding Print Projects at the 17th Annual Graphics Excellence Award Celebrations

Press release from the issuing company

PEWAUKEE, WI - The Great Lakes Graphics Association (GLGA) will hold its annual Graphics Excellence Awards (GEA) Celebrations on May 18, 2016. There are dual celebrations:  Illinois/Indiana Celebration at the Medinah Shrine Center in Addison, IL, and the Wisconsin GEA Celebration at the Wisconsin Club in Milwaukee, WI. The Celebrations are the culmination of the annual GEA competition, which recognizes companies through Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin for superb craftsmanship in the design, creation and production of top-quality printed material they produce for their customers.

The GEA competition was judged over two days with a panel of outside graphics experts who brought more than 60 years of collective print, finishing and converting experience to their evaluation of the contenders.   

Joseph Lyman, GLGA president, is extremely proud of the quality of work submitted in the 2016 GEA competition and the results it produced. “As one of the largest regional graphic competitions in North America with more than 800 submissions representing 64 companies, the GEAs are one of most recognized programs GLGA manages throughout the year,” Lyman said. “This year, more than 75 percent of companies submitting projects won either a Gutenberg (Best of Category) or a Best of Division award. This demonstrates just how outstanding the quality of work produced in our region is and the high level of parity there is among printers, finishers and converters located throughout Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin. We are extremely proud to represent such outstanding print organizations.”

At the May 18th Celebrations, Gutenberg awards will be presented to the winners in nearly 100 categories and Best of Division plaques to winners in more than 40 divisions. In addition, the highly anticipated Best of Show winner will be presented at the end of the evening. Celebration attendees also can vote for their favorite piece to select the highly popular People’s Choice Award.
