The search for outstanding young employee nominations for the 2013 Future Leaders Award is on again across Australia.

Sponsored by Media Super, the award is being run in conjunction with the Printing Industries Craftsmanship Awards (PICA).

Bill Healey (pictured), CEO of the Printing Industries Association of Australia (Printing Industries), said that 2013 would be the first time all states had been able to include it as a part of their PICA events.

Right across Australia – Bill Healey, Printing Industries CEO.

“The inaugural awards were launched in NSW, Victoria and Tasmania last year and from this year it is a part of all our state PICAs making the Future Leaders Award a truly national and highly competitive event,” he said. “Printing Industries is deeply involved in encouraging young people to further their careers in our industry, at all levels from apprentices to managers. They are a key part of our industry’s future development.

“High levels of talent and commitment need to be encouraged and nurtured.  The Media Super Future Leaders Award demonstrates that, as an industry, we are serious about promoting achievement and excellence to help develop the industry leaders of tomorrow,” he said.

Healey commended Media Super for its continuing support of the awards at both state and national levels. Media Super National Client Relationship Manager, Lisa Collins, said that Media Super was proud to continue its support of Future Leaders Award and to build on a successful print industry partnership.

“This award was created to recognise and reward exceptional & creative young people employed in any sector of the industry, from print to packaging, graphics and design,” she said. “While new forms of media are topical, print remains a fundamental, environmentally friendly, creative and highly effective part of the communications mix with opportunities at every level.”

Nominations should be submitted to Printing Industries state office before the PICA awards entry closing date for that state. An Entry form and criteria can be downloaded here.

The National winner will receive an all-expense paid trip to the 2014 National Print Awards plus $2000 for their superannuation account.
