The Frances Rice Darne Memorial Award, discontinued in 1987 when it was replaced by the Karl Ferdinand Braun Prize, was awarded periodically to a Society member for an outstanding technical achievement (other than teaching, publication or service) or contribution to the display field. The award was made by the SID Board of Directors. For additional information see Francis Rice Darne Bio.
1987 - 2007 WINNERS
The Johann Gutenberg Prize was established by SID to honor outstanding technical achievements in, or contributions to, printer technology. The award was made by the Board of Directors acting on the recommendation of the Honors and Awards Committee and carried a stipend of US $2000. Following a transition period that ended in 2007 the Johann Gutenberg Prize has been transferred to the Society for Imaging Science and Technology, which now administers and confers the award.
