Brooklyn, N.Y. – The LIU Brooklyn yearbook, Sound, and its printer, Jostens, a leading producer of yearbooks and student-created content, were named recipients of the Premier Print Awards from the Printing Industries of America.

The Premier Print Awards, established in 1950, is the industry’s oldest and most prestigious international awards competition. Each year, printing companies from the United States, Canada, Mexico, South America, Australia, China and other nations around the world enter the Premier Print Awards in hopes that they will be recognized as one of the best in print.

“The last time we received this award was for Sound 2009,” noted Karlene Thompson, director of Student Life and Leadership Development at LIU Brooklyn. “We are delighted to be honored again and look to even greater things for Sound 2013.”

LIU Brooklyn’s Sound was awarded one of 13 Certificates of Merit, which are given to approximately five to 10 percent of all entries. Certificates of Merit honor those who have achieved an extremely high level of quality in printing and design. Other winners included yearbooks from Duke, Cornell and Harvard.

Penn State’s La Vie 2012 was chosen as a first place winner from all School Yearbook Category submissions.

The competition receives more than 3,000 entries across all forms of print. The criterion for the competition is based on the overall look of the finished publication, including quality of photography, design expertise, print quality and final binding.
