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.
The Luminaire Awards are given out each year at the Annual Franklin Luminaire Awards Gala, an annual dinner to raise funds to provide scholarships and other financial assistance to students with a demonstrated interest in advertising, media, printing and publishing. Learn more by going HERE.
