NAUMD Names 2011 Image of the Year Winners

ORLANDO, Fla. — The North-American Association of Uniform Manufacturers & Distributors (NAUMD) recently selected the winners of its annual Image of the Year Awards (IOY), a competition that honors excellence in both the design and wear of image and corporate apparel programs.

The awards honor the best corporate and image apparel programs produced over the last year by North America’s most sought after suppliers and distributors of such designs. The award is the industry’s highest achievement, says the organization, and is sponsored by the Image Apparel Institute, a division of the NAUMD.

For more than 31 years, the NAUMD’s Image of the Year Awards has honored uniform manufacturers and distributors that have mastered the concept of fashion and function within image and market planning. Winners in each category represent apparel programs with distinct purposes or functions within their industry.
