The entry deadline for the 2019 Printing Industry Creativity Awards has been extended to May 3 after concerns were raised about the Easter holidays and Anzac Day public holiday delaying the receipt of entries.
The PICAs are the first step for Australian printers to gain the opportunity to have their work considered for the National Print Awards with winning national entries displayed in Canberra at the 2019 Print to Parliament event.
PIAA chief executive officer Andrew Macaulay said the theme for 2019 is innovation, evolution and revolution and urged printers to submit their work.
The first category entered is free for Printing Industries Association of Australia members.
PIAA events manager Jacobena Mills said the reason for the extension was a surge in entries and concerns about the public holidays effecting delivery times.
"The change has been precipitated by a surge in entries with many entrants concerned that their entries would not arrive in time for judging, given the Easter long weekend followed in the same week by ANZAC Day on Thursday 25 April," Ms Mills said.
"In order to alleviate concerns around the timing of entries and shipping of entries, the cut off for online entries has been moved to 3 May."
