The Gold Medal was established in 1966 by “The World’s Paper Trade Review” magazine which was published by Benn Brothers and edited by Eric Haylock (himself the winner of the Medal in 1986). The magazine later became known as “Paper” and the publishers continued to sponsor it until 1993.

It is now administered by the Paper Industry Gold Medal Association whose membership comprises all holders of the Medal together with representative members from a number of the industry’s Trade Associations.

Nominations are sought annually in the Autumn and the award is made early the following year. The Medal is presented at an appropriate Industry function during the year.
