“We all know how hectic it gets for printers in the last couple of weeks before the Christmas break, so the best time to review any material that’s due to go to the judges is right now,” he said.

The deadline for submissions is January 16, 2004, but Carrigan says printers should play it safe by ensuring their projects are in for submission well before the Christmas break.

The call for entries to the latest National Print Awards began several weeks ago, amid news that the Awards have been given a new lease on life. The switch to a Friday means attendees both from Sydney and interstate can take a well-earned break after the show and be back at their businesses in time for Monday morning.

The first of the new-style Awards presentations, under the banner of the Printing Industries Association of Australia, took place in Melbourne this year – and the move to Sydney for the next Awards will see further innovations.

A major highlight of the 21st National Print Awards will be the industry sponsor awards – the Heidelberg Craft Award, the Agfa Award for Most Creative Use of Photography In Printing, and Australian Paper’s Award for Print Excellence.

“The prestige and recognition that print companies derive from all these Awards is immeasurable so the focus should now be on getting those entries in, well before the judges get to work early in the new year,” said Carrigan, who also adjudicated at the first Asian Print Awards in Singapore last week.
