If you were with us for last year's Franklin Luminaire Awards, a big Thank You!  Your participation, along with the hundreds of others who attended that evening, has brought the graphic communications career goals and aspirations of deserving Metro New York students within reach.  Reports from all fronts are in agreement - the premier networking event in the graphics communications industry was an unqualified success! An impressive slate of honorees received much deserved recognition for their efforts.

Mark your calendar for October 19, 2016.  Your Franklin Luminaire Awards committee has already been hard at work to make this year's event the best yet. Watch for news of this year's Luminaire Award recipients, as well as the coveted 2016 Franklin Award for Distinguished Service recipient. This year, there will be two awards, the recipients of which will be chosen from nominations submitted from the industry. Deadline for nominations for both awards is April 15, 2016.
