The Great Lakes Graphics Association (GLGA) recently honored Walsworth–Ripon and its clients with 11 Graphics Excellence Awards.
The entries garnered five Best of Category, three Best of Division, two Awards of Excellence and one Certificate of Merit. One entry, the Sophisticated Weddings – New York Edition, Volume 1, received Best of Category and Best of Division honors. The award winners also represented several different product categories including catalogs, magazines, books, newspapers and booklets.
Winners selected by a team of independent, out-of-state judges.
The team of judges is composed of experts in the graphic communications industry. An entry is judged first on technical expertise and the quality of printing, then on design features and overall graphic appeal.
Walsworth–Ripon’s award-winning entries were:
- Best of Category and Best of Division – Sophisticated Weddings – New York Edition Volume 1, Fashion/Health/Pop Culture;
- Best of Category – Elite Traveler Jan/Feb 2019, Magazines (cover sheetfed, interior web);

“Our clients and the Walworth team just keep exceeding expectations with more awards and higher placements,” said Julie Newhouse, GM of the Walsworth–Ripon facility. “I was especially pleased when GLGA informed us that the judges admired our work. I couldn’t agree more.”
All five winners in Best of Category will automatically move on to the Benny awards and possibly the Best of Division as well. The award celebration normally held in May has been rescheduled for Sept. 8, 2020.
There will be simultaneous award ceremonies in two locations, the Medinah Shrine Center in Addison, IL, and the Wisconsin Club in Milwaukee, WI.
