  • ‘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 ian@printnet.com.au

  • Last chance for ‘Print is Alive’ apprentice competition

    Industry apprentices have until 19 April to finalise their entries in the ‘Print is Alive’ competition that could see them enhance their career prospects and win an expense free trip to Australia’s largest printing industry exhibition, PacPrint 2013.

    Printing Industries Association of Australia is running the Print is Alive promotion to encourage apprentices to become advocates for the industry and to use their talents to communicate the theme via any of a variety of mediums.

    National Program Manager of the Association’s Apprenticeship Advisor and Mentoring Program, Ian Walz (pictured), said that the message that Print is Alive was not restricted to any format and could be delivered as 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.

    “We want the apprentices to communicate the message with the medium they are comfortable with and believe to be the most effective for this theme,” he said.

    The winner would be flown to Melbourne from their home state (if outside of Victoria) or transported locally and accommodated overnight for 1-2 nights as necessary.

    They would also receive:

    • A guided tour of PacPrint by their Mentor on 24 May 2013
    • Lunch while attending PacPrint.
    • A Ticket to attend the National Print Awards Presentation Dinner on Friday 24 May.
    • Out of pocket expenses.

    “The winning entry will be displayed on the Printing Industries PacPrint stand, number 1618, from 21 May. The stand will also feature mentor staff available to discuss how our program can assist apprentices or help company managers to recruit apprentices,” Mr Walz said.

    Entries should be sent to Ian Walz, Printing Industries Association of Australia, 25 South Parade Auburn, NSW 2144 or emailed to ian@printnet.com.au
