The Banknote Achievement in Technology Award

The Banknote Conference Advisory Committee invites nominations for The Banknote Achievement in Technology Award. This award is presented in recognition of an individual's outstanding contribution to banknote technology and the advancement of security, usability and efficiency of banknotes.

Historically, the organizers of the Banknote Conference have awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award at each conference. See recent past winners below. However, for 2018 and beyond, Currency Research (the organizers of the Banknote Conference) have decided to orient the award more towards technological achievements in banknotes to coincide with the technology theme of the conference. The esteemed Banknote Conference Advisory Committee will make the selection based on nominations received.

The award winner will be announced at the 2018 Banknote Conference in Dallas, TX, May 21-24.

The Advisory Committee is accepting nominations now through February 15, 2018.
