It’s diary time for the state Printing Industries Craftsmanship Awards (PICA) events around the country with all dates finalised. Queensland, which has traditionally hosted the final PICA for the year, comes forward this year to 1 September in line with its new spring theme.

Neal McLary, general manager for Printing Industries QLD, said the move would also take the event away from what has become one of the busiest times of the year for pre-Christmas activities.

“People are very busy at this time of the year with work commitments and the beginning of the festive season, so we have come forward a couple of months with this in mind,” he said.

The 2012 PICA season begins with the Western Australian PICA on Saturday 25 August at the Burswood Casino.

This is followed by Queensland 1 September at the Brisbane Hilton Hotel; Tasmania Saturday 13 October (Wrest Point Casino); South Australian/Northern Territory Friday 19 October (Adelaide Entertainment Centre); NSW Friday 2 November (Sydney Convention Centre); Victoria Friday 9 November (Sofitel on Collins) and the ACT PAGE Awards Friday 23 November (Hotel Realm).

The National Print Awards will be held on Friday 20 April at the Crown Palladium, Southbank, and Melbourne. Call for Entries information for all state PICAs will be available in coming weeks.
