Founders Award Nomination Form

Award Regulations


Created in 1979, this award is presented annually to the person who has worked unselfishly for the success of the association. The recipient is recognized for reflecting the spirit of the original founders of the association—individuals committed to promoting communication, cooperation, sharing, and unity, as well as to fostering growth and enhancing professionalism within the association.

Nomination Guidelines

The nominee must have been an Awards and Personalization Association member for a number of years. The nominee must have made outstanding contributions to the association. Current Awards Committee members and spouses or relatives of Awards Committee members are not eligible for nomination.

Judging Process

Although multiple nominations can be submitted for each nominee, only one nomination is required to ensure eligibility for the award. Nominations will be active for 3 years. The Awards Committee will score all entrants and select a winner.

The award recipient will be announced at the 2022 International Awards & Personalization Expo in Las Vegas. The winner will receive a Gold Obelisk and a profile in Insights magazine.
