  • PICA Victoria calls for outstanding entries

    Victorian Printing Industries Craftsmanship Awards (PICAs) organisers are calling on all print service providers to put their most outstanding examples of print up for this year’s awards in November – but get in quick, entries close on 13 September.

    PICA Victoria Chairman, Trevor Hone (pictured), said: “Print is an uniquely effective, tactile and practical media which simply can’t be replicated,” Hone said today, “and this year we want to set tongues wagging by showcasing the very best and brightest the industry has to offer at PICA Victoria.

    “Earlier this year, the industry gathered in Melbourne to see the very latest industry advances at PacPrint. There, we witnessed not only how print can hold its own across areas from direct mail and digital masterpieces, to signage, catalogues and printing, but also how print is keeping pace in a new age with exciting cross-media options.

    “There’s no question that print today is as relevant as it has ever been and this is backed by research which proves its effectiveness and popularity, even with the so-called ‘digital natives’. In short, there’s nothing like print – and the PICA Victoria competition is a chance for those who produce the fantastic and diverse products which make up ‘print’ to put their work up against the very best of the best,” he said.

    So, for those who believe their print is among the best the industry has to offer, it’s time, says Hone, to ‘let your print do the talking’ by submitting their best work to be judged against the finest examples of print produced in the past 12 months in Victoria. Awards will be made in 38 categories at what has become one of the industry’s highlight events, the PICA Victoria Presentation Evening, to be held this year on Friday 8 November.

    “Not only will winners take home tangible proof they are a leader in the industry but Gold Medal winners will also gain automatic entry into the National Print Awards, giving them an exclusive chance to pit their work against the best in the nation,” added Hone.

    “So come on – words are cheap! This is the perfect chance to prove to your clients that you’re more than just talk so round up your best work, download your entry form from the website and enter today to let your print do the talking,” he said.

    Full entry details are circulating throughout the industry and can also be found on the PICA Victoria website at Entries close on Friday 13 September, 2013.
