The 2018 National Print Awards will be held at Brighton Lakes Golf Club in Moorebank, southwestern Sydney, on June 29. The big night will feature the gold-medal winners from each state’s PICA awards.

According to Andrew Macaulay, CEO of Printing Industries, the nominees this year truly represent the best of the best Australia’s printers have to offer, and not just from the big states – smaller markets such as Tasmania and the Northern Territory now have the chance to compete on the national stage. “These are truly national print awards, and truly a representation of the best that has come out of each state,” he said. “This is about quality and it shouldn’t matter where you’re producing it – we’re in a national economy, and this is a way of showcasing work on a national scale.”

The venue, well outside Sydney’s CBD, was selected in response to members’ feedback that the awards should be held at a location closer to their businesses. “Venues in the CBD are neither near where printers are nor very affordable. This is a terrific venue which has hosted a number of industry events, and was recommended by some members,” said Macaulay.

Macaulay encourages printers to sign up for the day’s events preceding the awards, including a golf day, seminars, and the PIAA’s annual general meeting. “The industry golf day will be a fun social event, and people should definitely book because it’ll sell out quickly. We also encourage all members to attend the industry seminars and the AGM in the afternoon, where we’ll give an account of our actions and our vision for the future.”
