The National Print Awards are set to take place at the Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre, Darling Harbour, on May 12. Organisers are urging those in the industry who have been deferring their arrangements to act quickly to avoid disappointment, as bookings will be closing this Friday April 28.

Scott Telfer, chairman of the National Print Awards, says this year’s event is set to be bigger and better than ever before, living up to its reputation as the industry’s ‘night of nights.’

“The night is shaping up to be one of the biggest in Sydney for many years and in particular being a Friday night, many people are making it a part of a long weekend in Sydney,” says Telfer.

Channel 10 news presenter Sandra Sully will host the National Print Awards presentation dinner, and the event will also feature entertainment from acclaimed impressionist and comedian Paul Martell.

All medal-winning work will be on display in the foyer before the start of the dinner, providing the industry with a first-hand look at the work from companies that excelled in the industry over the past year.

As well as the gold awards, the presentation will also feature the special ‘sponsors’ awards, including the PaperlinX Award for ‘printing excellence by an apprentice’, the Agfa Award for ‘most innovative use of imaging’ and the Heidelberg Australia Award for ‘excellence in craft’.

Attendees will receive a complimentary 96-page award book, valued at $35, listing all winners of Gold, Silver and Bronze medals. The organizers say the publication will make for a prized memento of the annual event.

Prices for tickets are $135 per head and tables of 10 will be allocated in order of booking.

Invitations can be obtained by visiting www.nationalprintawards.com.au and downloading a registration form.
