There’s clearly excitement on all sides as the news that Julia Zemiro will host this year’s National Print Awards Presentation Dinner in Melbourne later this month filters through the industry… and the lady herself has expressed equal enthusiasm about taking part in the night.

Tickets are selling faster than normal for the event say organisers, particularly in view of the fact that this year’s event does not run in conjunction with a major industry exhibition – a factor Chairman John Wanless says is usually a key driver of ticket sales.

“We’re delighted with the response to the announcement of Julia’s involvement,” he said, adding that NPA representatives had met with Zemiro this week and she expressed her enthusiasm about the event.

“Julia (pictured) is delighted with the ‘Greatest Hits’ theme, which fits beautifully with her background as host of Rockwiz,” Wanless said. “She’s told us she’s really looking forward to having some fun with that on the night – for her, it definitely adds a bit of extra enjoyment to be able to run with that musical theme, and we are definitely anticipating a very entertaining night, with her lovely effervescent personality and quirky sense of humour.”

Obviously, those in the industry feel the same, with ticket sales up so much that Wanless urges anyone who wants to attend to book without delay.

“Given the sales so far, I’d say we’ll reach capacity with no problems at all this year, so if you’re thinking of coming along, book early to avoid disappointment,” he said. “As well as seeing the lovely Julia in action, the National Print Awards are always a fantastic opportunity to enjoy a sumptuous dinner, hear the year’s Gold Medalists announced first hand, and of course to catch up with colleagues and friends.”

The National Print Awards Presentation Dinner will be held at the Palladium at Crown in Melbourne on the night of Friday 20 April, 2012. Tickets are $160 a head and can be purchased by downloading the form at or by contacting Mandy at Printing Industries by email at or by calling 03 8541 7310.
