PVCA releases key dates for 2020 print awards
Next year’s National Print Awards event will be held on July 31, with the state-based PICAs set to take place during April and May. The NPAs will presented in partnership with Media Super.
Entries into the Printing Industry Creativity Awards open on 20 January. Gold winners of the PICAs go through to the judging panel for the National Print Awards.
With revised categories as a result of member feedback, PVCA board oversight, and international judging panel insight the competition for gold will be strong. The PVCA says the updated categories “are designed to set a new standard that will showcase the strengths of print businesses in Australia”.
Based on the success of having an independent international judging panel the awards will again source international experts to judge the revised categories. Andrew Macaulay, CEO of PVCA said, “ “International judges raised the profile and validity of the National Print Awards. This has been recognised both within our industry and from consumers of industry services. It was noteworthy the large presence of customers at the National Print Awards and at Print 2 Parliament!”
Following the success of the second annual Print 2 Parliament! the awards programme will focus on the journey to Parliament House. Gold national winners will have the opportunity to exhibit their work to policy makers at the third annual Print 2 Parliament!in October 2020.
Design students (Holmesglen, RMIT) will have the opportunity to enter a new category, Design2Print! which rewards exemplary design that has gone to print. The winning piece will be auctioned for charity at the 37th annual National Print Awards.
Media Super continue to support the awards programme as our premier partner, we thank them for their continued support.
