Cenveo Publisher Services and the PROSE Awards Release iPROSE: 40 Years of Excellence in Scholarly Publishing

In honor of the PROSE Awards’ 40th anniversary, Cenveo Publisher Services and the PROSE Awards released iPROSE: 40 Years of Excellence in Scholarly Publishing, an interactive digital publication now available for free download on any iOS device via the Cenveo Mobile app.

Building on their annual sponsorship of audio/visual at the PROSE Awards luncheon, Cenveo approached AAP about creating a special digital publication in recognition of this milestone anniversary. “When we begin a digital project, the vision for the end product comes from our customers, then our team combines various resources – instructional designers, editors, creative – to bring that vision to life,” explains Waseem Andrabi, Senior Director of Global Content Services at Cenveo Publisher Services.

With iPROSE, Cenveo transformed 40 years of award winner lists into an interactive timeline, identifying almost all of the R.R. Hawkins Award winners for the first time in PROSE history. iPROSE also features the top ten highlights in PROSE history, audio greetings from PROSE Chairman John A. Jenkins, Founder and CEO of Law Street Media, and Kate Kolendo, Project Manager for PSP at AAP, who manages the PROSE Awards, and more, including information on awards history that can’t be found in any other source.

“The creative team at Cenveo has been exceptional. They conceptualized, designed and produced the digital edition,” explains Kate Kolendo. “From the first R.R. Hawkins Award that went to Little, Brown & Co. for Cleft Craft to the 2016 Hawkins winner, The Scholar Denied: W.E.B. Du Bois and the Birth of Modern Sociology published by University of California Press, iPROSE celebrates the best in professional and scholarly publishing in a very engaging way.”

In 1976, the Professional and Scholarly Publishing (PSP) Division of the Association of American Publishers (AAP) established the PSP Awards for Excellence, with the R.R. Hawkins Award as its top prize. Renamed the American Publishers Awards for Professional and Scholarly Excellence (or PROSE) in 2008, PROSE recognizes outstanding contributions to professional and scholarly publishing across a broad spectrum of scholarship.
