Industry superannuation fund, Media Super, has signed on as the exclusive partner of the ProPrint Emerging 50, which seeks to recognise the contributions of newcomers or those with around five years experience in the printing industry.
The Emerging 50 is running alongside the Power 50, which is in its ninth year of recognising printing industry leaders and innovators in Australia.
Media Super has been supporting printers and the industry since 1987, when its predecessor Print Super was established.
Media Super chair Gerard Noonan says he is pleased to support the Emerging 50 and looks forward to seeing where the 2019 Emerging 50 nominees progress to as their careers continue.
“As the industry’s own super fund we’re pleased to support the ProPrint Emerging 50, recognising the invaluable contributions of print’s up-and-coming talent,” Noonan told Sprinter.
“The print and visual communication professionals who make the Emerging 50 list will represent the best of the next generation of industry leaders; the innovators who will create the ‘next big thing’ and ensure the industry meets new challenges as they arise.
“It’s so important to recognise talent and celebrate excellence, and we look forward to following the careers of these talented professionals.”
Nominations have now closed for the 2019 Emerging 50 with the full list to be published in the December edition of ProPrint.
Advance copies of the magazine, which will also include the Power 50, will be made available at the Power 50 and Emerging 50 event in Sydney in late November.
As the industry fund for print, media, entertainment and arts, Media Super aims to help members achieve financial security in retirement and as part of Australia’s creative community, it works with industry partners – including the Print and Visual Communication Association and The Real Media Collective – to help them build vibrant, robust sectors.
We support a variety of professional development and networking programs, aimed at nurturing talent, strengthening skills and helping our members excel professionally. Media Super’s partnerships program also aims to help companies evolve and face the challenges of a changing industry.
Through their partners, they also have the opportunity to deliver superannuation and financial literacy education, tailored to unique challenges our members face as print, media, entertainment and arts professionals.
Media Super is also a longstanding supporter of the National Print Awards and state-based PICAs, and proudly supports the Media Super Young Executive of the Year and Industry Legend awards.
