Awards

The GBW Awards

The Guild of Book Workers gives out two awards every year. The first is the Laura Young Award, established in 2003 and given to a member who has served the Guild in an outstanding manner. The second is the GBW Lifetime Achievement Award, given to anyone, member or not, for service to the profession of the book arts. Prior to 2007, the Lifetime Achievement Award was known as the Honorary Membership Award. To read about past recipients, check the August or October issue of the GBW Newsletter for the appropriate year.
