The number of entries in the South Australian/Northern Territory PICA awards has set a new record following the entry close-off last week.

According to Peter Mansfield, general manager of Printing Industries SA/NT, the number of entries this year reached 450, an increase of 20 per cent over the 2010 total and eclipsing the previous record set in 2003.

“We had a flood of entries in the final week including many companies who had previously not entered or who had not entered for some years. It’s quite apparent that many more businesses are seeing the value of entering the state PICAs and this is being reflected by the increased numbers.

“With trading conditions being difficult or uncertain, there is a greater appreciation of the marketing value a PICA win at any level can bring to businesses as a point of differentiation,” he said.

Meanwhile entries for the Victorian PICA close 26 August followed by NSW closing on 2 September, Queensland 9 September and the ACT Page Awards 4 November.

Information on the state events is available on the Printing Industries website under the PICA & NPA Information link or by clicking here.

Western Australia will hold its PICA presentation dinner on 27 August. Booking information is available on (08) 9361 4625.
