FLEXO 2009 MARCH Excellence in Flexography Award Winners Chosen The FTA's 2009 Excellence in Flexography Awards judging took place recently, and when all was said and done, a total of 123 Excellence in Flexography Award winners were selected. Additionally, 10 Graphic Design Awards were decided. With eight Best of Show selections, the number of print design and production based awards will total 141 and will be presented at the Forum 2009 Awards Banquet on May 3, 2009. Plan to be on hand to witness the pre- sentations. And remember FLEXQ's May issue, scheduled for distribution on-site at Forum, will contain a full recap and fea- ture four-color photos of each and every award winning print job. Back in the Day... On Sunday, Aug. 8, 15 professors representing leading graphic arts programs met in Rochester, NY at Rochester Institute of Technology (R.I.T.). Their pur- pose-to position flexography as a major print process and to make it a part of routine study for young people seeking a career in graphic communication. This may sound like one of many events hosted by FTA to promote educa- tion among colleges and universities. However, in 1982, it was one of the first of its kind. Charles Weigand, then professor at R.I.T., helped lead the proceed- ings. Many of the institutions present at that time have gone on to establish leading programs in flexography and packaging, including Clemson University, University of Wisconsin - Stout, and Western Michigan University.
