Idealliance and the Printing Industries Alliance combined the Luminaire and Franklin Awards into one Best in Communications Event, beginning in 2014. The combined Franklin Luminaire Awards event takes place in New York City, each fall. One Franklin Award for Distinguished Service and up to five Luminaire Awards recognizing outstanding performers in advertising, publishing, printing, and integrated media are presented.

The Franklin Award for Distinguished Service represents the highest single honor presented by the Metro New York City graphic communications industry and serves to focus national attention on the rapidly evolving and wide-ranging world of graphic communications. For more than half a century, industry leaders have assembled at the Franklin Event to salute a distinguished roster of recipients that has included several U.S. Presidents and a variety of statesmen, diplomats, military leaders and renowned leaders in business and the arts.

The Luminaire Awards, for 25 years,has honored those who represent the fervor of commitment and inspiration in media production, presented by Idealliance through its charitable arm, the Digital Enterprise Education & Research (DEER) Foundation. In recognition of their positive influence, creative excellence, and personal dedication within graphic communications, the Luminaire Awards recognizes outstanding achievements by media production leaders.
