Chapel takes most golds at Print Awards
Chapel Press sits on top of the print leaderboard after scoring four golds at last night's National Print Awards, with Rawson Print Co on three golds, and several printers taking two.
Digital Press, AAB and LabelHouse all won two, in a glittering event held at the Waterview next to the PrintEx exhibition showgrounds.
Awards partner Media Super presented two awards on the evening – with Christina Condos winning the Media Super Young Executive of the Year award, and Stephen Penfold winning the Media Super Legends Award.
Notable wins include Press Print, who took home the inaugural International Judges Book Prize.
Presenting Partner for the Awards was Media Super, with Bronze Sponsor Epson Australia, and Awards Patron Ball & Doggett, Australia's biggest printable media supplier.
The evening also saw the LIA Apprentice of the Year presentation, with Jonathan Pitt taking out the title from a strong line up of young people.
Some 74 medals were awarded in total, with the gold medal winning companies moving on to be displayed in Parliament House in October at the second Print2Parliament!, which will again be held on International Print Day, this year on 23 October.
