Host of Channel 10’s Good News Week (GNW), Paul McDermott, will MC this year’s WorkCover NSW PICA awards at Doltone House, Jones Bay Wharf on Friday 5 November.

The wisecracking ringmaster of parody returns after a very successful 2009 awards hosting at which he admitted he had a great time and enjoyed being able to individually meet many industry members.

Last year, McDermott (pictured) warmed to the event spending considerable time posing for photographs and signing autographs late into the evening.

This year’s event is themed ‘where Creativity meets Innovation’ and will provide a fast-paced, colourful night of recognition and entertainment as a package at the multi-award winning venue.

Printing Industries CEO Philip Andersen, said the event could be used by printers to bring their clients to as a ‘thank you’ and to help reinforce the creative and environmental credentials of the industry.

“We all need to play our part in educating people outside of the industry about the creativity, innovation and environmental benefits of ink on paper and our PICA events are a wonderful opportunity to do this in a relaxed and entertaining way,” he said.

“Awards are a major part of it, but not everyone wins or chooses to enter. However everyone can benefit from the camaraderie and being part of a quality event that shows a side of the industry few outsiders would have the privilege of seeing and being a part of.”
