Idealliance and the Printing Industries Alliance combined the Luminaire and Franklin Awards into one Best in Communications Event, beginning in 2014. The combined Franklin Luminaire Awards event takes place in New York City, each fall. One Franklin Award for Distinguished Service and up to five Luminaire Awards recognizing outstanding performers in advertising, publishing, printing, and integrated media are presented.

The Franklin Award for Distinguished Service represents the highest single honor presented by the Metro New York City graphic communications industry and serves to focus national attention on the rapidly evolving and wide-ranging world of graphic communications. For more than half a century, industry leaders have assembled at the Franklin Event to salute a distinguished roster of recipients that has included several U.S. Presidents and a variety of statesmen, diplomats, military leaders and renowned leaders in business and the arts.

The Luminaire Awards, for 25 years,has honored those who represent the fervor of commitment and inspiration in media production, presented by Idealliance through its charitable arm, the Digital Enterprise Education & Research (DEER) Foundation. In recognition of their positive influence, creative excellence, and personal dedication within graphic communications, the Luminaire Awards recognizes outstanding achievements by media production leaders.

Innovation Excellence Award

The Innovator Excellence Award will be presented at the Franklin Luminaire Awards Program on October 19, 2016 at The Lighthouse, Chelsea Piers, New York City, before an expected audience of more than 400 media professionals.  The Award Honoree will be announced initially in a press release and be prominent in all event publicity. The recipient will be selected by a group of nine (9) technology partners and users from a select committee of industry experts from Idealliance and PIAlliance.  Award nominees are not required to be members of either Idealliance or PIAlliance, but are required to attend the Franklin Luminaire Awards event to receive their Innovation Excellence Award. The recipient will be selected by the Franklin Luminaire Committee and be given his/her award in person at the Franklin Luminaire Awards Program on October 19, 2016 at The Lighthouse, Chelsea Piers, in New York City, before an expected audience of more than 400 graphic professionals.

Honorees

Zenger Community Service Award

The Award 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 Award is inscribed in Latin, Non numinis, virtue parator. Translated, this means, “Not by money, but by virtue gained.” A $1,000 contribution will be made to the 2015 Zenger honoree’s charity of choice on behalf of Idealliance and PIAlliance, co-sponsors of the Franklin Luminaire Awards.
