2022 Awards

A highlight of the Fall Technical Conference is the recognition and celebration of those who have contributed significantly to the industry. Two awards will be bestowed to individuals who have made a difference and because of their efforts, the printing ink industry has become what it is today.

Deadline to Nominate: September 30, 2022

Technical Achievement Award

The Technical Achievement Award honors an individual who has contributed in a technical capacity to the printing ink industry and recognizes his or her contribution to the advancement of printing ink technology. Technical achievement can be in the form of research, development, or other technology in any segment of the ink industry. 

Eligible candidates have served in the ink industry for a minimum of 15 years and have made contributions to the science of printing ink formulation, manufacture, or application. Candidates may have also contributed outstanding service to the printing ink industry in management, marketing, public relations, and government affairs. 

The winner of this award shall not be eligible for the Ault Award in the same year.

TAM Service Award

The TAM Service Award recognizes and honors an outstanding individual who, as a supplier to the printing ink industry, has played a major role in the progress of printing ink technology. Printing ink manufacturers, with the help of their suppliers, transform chemical raw materials into useful industrial end-products vital to the existence of the graphic arts. This complex conversion requires a high order of scientific competence achieved through research and development. New applications of raw materials, new methods of production, and new achievements in performance and service to the users (made possible by the dedicated service of the supplier industry’s technical personnel) have all contributed to the vitality of the ink industry today.
