The annual banquet is when the Association’s highest honors, the Impact Awards, are presented. These are selected by the membership and are awarded to individuals who have made a measurable and lasting contribution to both the media industry and the people of Greater Rochester.

Also, each media organization will honor an Establish Professional Award recipient, and a Rising Star Award recipient.
