All the National Print Award winners

The 2014 National Print Awards saw 52 printers who had won their state PICA awards battling for 33 gold medals, four sponsors awards, and the inagural Judges Award for best overall print job.

Victoria’s Adams Print won the day, taking home three gold medals, the Heidelberg Award and the Judges award. Focal Printing from Tasmania won three golds, and double golds went to STI Group and Rawson Graphics from NSW; Picpress and Mercedes Waratah from Victoria; and Discus on Demand from WA.

Some 400 printers attended print’s night of nights at the Westin in Sydney, with the winners taking the accolades of their peers and industry figures over a sumptuous meal. Entertainment was provided by comedian Libbi Gorr.
