We invite all ACUP+ members to gather your amazing entries and submit them for our annual awards!

Institutions may submit one entry per category, with 24 categories overall in the areas of shop/management initiatives and production excellence.

To be eligible you must be a current ACUP+ member and there is no fee to enter.

Please be sure to completely fill out the submission entry cover sheet for each submission.

How to Enter

  • A separate entry form is required for each submission.
  • Awards are open to all ACUP+ members. You do not have to attend the annual conference to enter and/or win.
  • Submit entries to as many categories as you wish, but you may only enter each category once and cannot submit the same entry in more than one category.
  • Entries must have been accomplished or produced January 1–December 31, 2023.
  • Entries must be post or courier marked by Tuesday, January 9, 2024.


  • Impression Awards:  ACUP+ Impression awards span seven categories: Collaborative Service, Green Service, Accelerated Service, Distinctive Service, Impact WOW+, ACUP+ Achiever, and ACUP+ Hall of Fame.
  • Production Awards: Digital Production entries in the categories of Single Page, Multiple Page, and Multiple Piece will be further evaluated for two award subcategories: “Small shop” and “Large Shop”.  Production submission evaluation for all Offset, Graphic Design, Specialty Printed Products, Decals/Stickers, Operation/Shop Promotion, and Wide Format will not differentiate between small/large shop.


All entries will be judged by a panel of ACUP+ board members and industry peers, when available, during the annual ACUP+ strategic planning meeting. A guide to general judging criteria for all production categories can be found in the attached. If a member of the judging panel is from an institution with a submission in any category, they are excluded from participating in the judging for that category.

Awards Presentation 

We will announce the winners at the annual ACUP+ conference on Wednesday, April 17, 2024, at our Gala Dinner and Awards Program. You need not be present to win. Awards will be mailed to the winning members that can’t personally accept an award at the conference.
