Why Nominate Someone?

Recognize a woman who has displayed outstanding dedication to the industry. Berber Award recipients join over thirty years of outstanding women from the graphic communications industry, such as Janet Green, Laura Lawton-Forsyth, Diane Romano, Laura Gale, and Betty Maul. An engraved plaque is presented to the recipient to commemorate her accomplishments.

Eligibility Requirements

  • A candidate must have worked in the graphic communications industry for ten years or more.
  • A candidate must have an outstanding record of accomplishments that demonstrate her unusual contribution toward the development of the graphic communications industry; such contributions could be in the form of extraordinary leadership, direction, and/or support of programs or projects that have furthered the interests of the industry.
  • A candidate's activities must have extended over a period of time, and her contribution should not be confined to a single project, development, or program.

More consideration will be given to candidates with significant volunteer work in the graphic communications field or whose accomplishments have been outside of their job description. Previous winners are not eligible for a second award. Candidates do not have to be PRINTING United Alliance members.

History of the Award

Established in 1976 by the Graphic Arts Technical Foundation's Society of Fellows, now Printing Industries of America's Ben Franklin Society, this award honors the distinguished 45-year career of Naomi Berber, GATF's first administrative director (1925-1970).

Naomi Berber (1905-1973) began her career in New York as executive secretary to the president of the Lithographic Technical Foundation, predecessor to GATF. In 1965, when GATF brought its education, research, and administrative offices under one roof in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Ms. Berber moved to Pittsburgh to continue her work with the Foundation. Ms. Berber was known by her colleagues as the "First Lady of the Foundation," and was the first woman elected to the Society of Fellows.
