Graphic Excellence Awards 2016 Gala April 13, 2016
It's Time to Celebrate 30 Years of Print Excellence!
Now that the judging is over, it's time to plan on attending the awards Gala on Wednesday, April 13, 2016 at the Doubletree Greenway Plaza.
See all the outstanding entries in this year's competition and wonder which piece will be announced as the Best in Show. Find your own favorite and vote for the Peoples' Choice Award.
As you stroll along the display, visit the Communication Stations - information areas about communication through the years - scattered throughout.
Ten senior students in the UH Digital Media Program will be on hand sharing their portfolios with you. These are the workers of tomorrow in the industry - see what they are doing.
Check out all the items in the Silent Auction. Diamonds in the Rough will be back with numerous sports and entertainment memorabilia. Other items in the auction include Astros tickets, Skeeters game packages, St. Arnold Brewery gift basket, tickets to Galvestion attractions, and much more.
Not into Silent Auctions? How about a raffle for a chance to win either an autographed football or helmet from Tom Herman, UH Head Football Coach?
All proceeds from the auction and raffle go to the Digital Media Program to help with student travel expenses to key industry events like Graph Expo.
Join the industry as we celebrate print and those that have chosen by their peers as the best in the region.
