Award description

Sponsored by the Friends of the University Library, the competition is open to presses and publishers of all types and sizes. The winner and runners-up will receive national publicity and their works will be exhibited in the University Library of the University of Texas at El Paso for two months after the announcement of the award.

The winner will receive a $1,000 cash prize, a framed certificate, and a specially struck bronze medal designed by Hertzog's long-time associate; the late Tom Lea.

The Friends of the University Library was established in 1987 as the support group of the University Library of the University of Texas at El Paso. Its purposes are to inform the El Paso community of Library programs and accomplishments; to involve the community in Library activities; and to encourage gifts to the Library.

By creating and sponsoring the Hertzog Award, the Friends of the University Library endeavor to underscore the importance of fine printing as an art, to encourage work by new and established artisans, and to biennially recognize outstanding accomplishments in the field. Questions regarding the competition should be directed to the Library Director, 915-747-5683 or emailed to llimas@utep.edu.
