The Accredited Gemologists Association (AGA) is seeking nominations for the 2016 Antonio C. Bonanno Excellence in Gemology Award. This prestigious award recognizes major contributions made in the field of gemology. Deadline for nominations is July 15th.

Nominees for the Antonio C. Bonanno Award must have made a significant contribution to the gemological field, i.e., in research, education, etc., or defended and upheld gemological standards in a way that has benefited the larger gem and jewelry community. Past winners include leading research gemologists from world renowned laboratories, educators, market analysts, and developers of innovative software solutions for the gemological field.

The call for nominations is open to the international gem trade. Membership in the AGA is not required to nominate, nor be nominated for the Bonanno Award. The winner is selected by the voting members of the AGA in November. The award consists of a specially commissioned bronze plaque, along with a specially commissioned medallion and check for $2,000 US. Winners are honored each year in Tucson, Arizona, at the Gala Awards Ceremony and Dinner-Dance held at the conclusion of the AGA Gemological Conference.
