I went straight to the authority, Randy McNeilly. Randy was print chair for SEPPA and is also the assistant chair of PEC and was acting chair of PEC at IPC this week. Randy said "There are NO awards whatsoever for EI cases at SEPPA other then being eligible for the Canon Par Excellance award" Anyone's EI case that goes 4 for 4 as well as all SEPPA member PO cases that go 4 for 4 are eligible for that award. So Mark - SEPPA member or not there is only one award available for EI cases and everyone has the same shot at winning it.
