Frank J. Romano Endowed Prize for Publishing Entrepreneurship

Established in 2005 by Frank J. Romano and Xerox Corporation, this prize will be awarded to a member of the College of Imaging Arts and Sciences (CIAS) faculty or to a faculty team who has worked with students to create innovative publications using new technologies and/or workflows.

Frank J. Romano, an RIT emeritus faculty member, has been the world's foremost champion for the innovative use of new publishing technologies for more than three decades. Since he joined the faculty of the now School of Media Sciences at RIT in 1992, he has been responsible for the creation of numerous courses and programs that have focused on publishing entrepreneurship. His students have produced a steady stream of successful publications that have made creative use of the capabilities of new and emerging technologies. This competitive prize has been established to continue to inspire the kind of work that Frank routinely elicited from his students.
