Join us on May 24, 2017, for a celebration of the excellence of the craft of printing. Once again, there will be simultaneous award ceremonies in two locations, the Medinah Shrine Center in Addison, IL, and the Wisconsin Club in Milwaukee, WI.

The evenings will begin with registration opening at 4:30 p.m. and a reception with cash bar and hors d’oeuvres beginning at 5 p.m. The Best of Category and Best of Division winning pieces will be on display so that you can vote for your favorite for the People’s Choice Award. A delicious sit-down plated dinner with dessert begins at 6:30 p.m.

The awards ceremony will kick off at 7:15 p.m., with the awards for Best of Category and Best of Division presented locally. It all leads up to the announcement of the night’s top awards: Best of Show and Runner-Ups, Best of State, and People’s Choice winners.
