  • ‘Print is Alive’ apprentice competition extended

    The Printing Industries Association of Australia’s ‘Print is Alive‘ competition closing date for apprentices has been extended until Friday 3 May 2013.

    Ian Walz (pictured), Printing Industries’ national program manager of the Association’s Apprenticeship Advisor and Mentoring Program, said the extension was in response to requests for extra time.

    “We appreciate the challenge many apprentices may face who want to present a heavily visual entry on this important topic,” he said. “Apprentices were given options to present their entry in any format including a written essay (maximum 500 words), multimedia such as video/YouTube, a web page, animation, PowerPoint, a brochure, flyer, artwork, poster, photography or other created image.

    “This is not necessarily an easy brief when you have to work and attend courses during a normal week. We believe the extension will help many potential entrants to maximise the quality of their submissions,” he said.

    The winner will receive an expense free trip and accommodation in Melbourne to visit PacPrint and will also be a guest at the National Print Awards dinner presentation.

    Entries should be sent to Ian Walz, Printing Industries Association of Australia, 25 South Parade Auburn, NSW 2144 or emailed to
