Even Elvis loves print: ‘King’ to perform at Victorian PICAs

Elvis Presley, John Lennon and Jim Morrison will be the 'special guests' at the Victorian PICAs dinner.

Entertainer Mark Andrew will also deliver tribute performances to Buddy Holly, Dean Martin, Tom Jones – and Austin Powers.

The awards night, which will be held at the Sofitel Melbourne on Collins on 8 November, will be hosted by 3AW presenter Darren James.

Chairman Trevor Hone said more than 300 entries had been received.

"The PICA awards presentation dinner has always been a great chance to dress up and take your partner out to celebrate what you do, while enjoying a night of first class entertainment, outstanding music and fabulous food," he said.

"There’s no bigger night for the Victorian graphic communications industry than the PICA presentation dinner, so it’s only fitting we include some of the biggest names in entertainment.

"Even Elvis’ road manager, Joe Esposito, was raving, saying it was a fantastic tribute that brought back so many memories for him."

Medals will be handed out in 38 categories. Judges chairman Graeme Barnes praised the standard of entries.

"As a state and national print awards judge for many years, I was impressed," he said.

"Every year you think quality simply can’t improve any more, yet every year, to my surprise and delight, there are entries which show that businesses continue to push standards even higher. It’s fantastic to see, particularly against the backdrop of a very challenging and competitive market."
