National Print Awards held during PrintEx19

The 36th National Print Awards have taken place in Sydney with printers, visual communications artists and technicians, suppliers and exhibitors from PrintEx banding together to celebrate the successes of the Australian industry. 

The event was hosted by the Print & Visual Communication Association in partnership with Media Super.

Print & Visual Communication Association CEO Andrew Macaulay welcomed the attendees, addressing the innovation and creative work that they have brought to the market. 

“We’re all here to celebrate the wonderful people in the industry and the work that they do,” he said.

Media Super presented two awards on the evening, with Christina Condos Winning the Media Super Young Executive of the Year award and Stephen Penfold winning the Media Super Legends Award.

Penfold, who has been the executive chairman of Kwik Kopy Australia, has been in the industry for 54 years. 

Receiving the award, he spoke about the changing printing landscape.

“Today’s customer demands and its corresponding tech has changed. I have never thought that we would be disrupted; I still don’t think the industry is disrupted. But we ourselves have disrupted the industry. We have brought in the technologies to keep up with customer demands,” he said.

He also spoke about his love for printing.

“It’s an honour to be recognised for my life’s work in the industry that I absolutely love. This industry is one of the biggest employers in Australia in the secondary industries and it’s great because we all work like crazy to make it great.”

Satellite Digital won gold in the Epson Australia Leaflets Fliers and Brochures Award with their entry titled Martine. 

Notable wins include Press Print, which took home the inaugural International Judges Book Prize.

In addition, the Lithographic Institute of Australia handed out the Visual Connections LIA Graduate scholarship prize to Jonathan Pitt from Multi-Color Corporation. Pitt took home the $10,000 scholarship prize for the win.

In total, 74 medals were awarded in total, with the Gold medal winning companies moving on to be displayed at the Parliament House in October at the second Print2 Parliament! event.

Chapel Press took home four of the gold medals, for the One, Two or Three Colour Printing including Duotone category, Annual Report/Prospectus and Yearbooks (Any Format) category, Regional/Small Business Printing Awards – Print Business up to 12 Employees category, and Books, Brochures and Annual Reports (Design) category.
