The Power 50 recognises senior industry leaders. This year only the top 20 will be judged, with the remaining nominees announced at the ProPrint Awards on Friday November 26 in Sydney and published in the December issue of ProPrint magazine alphabetically.

It is possible to self-nominate and you can nominate more than one person from the same company.

The Emerging 50 recognises graphic designers, prepress operators, production assistants, postpress supervisors and finishing specialists as well as employees responsible for distribution, sales, administration and account management with approximately five years experience in the industry.

Emerging 50 nominees also have the opportunity to submit an application for the The Real Media Collective’s mentorship program. The successful applicant will be awarded a 12-month mentorship prize with 2020 Power 50 winner, Kellie Northwood, chief executive officer of The Real Media Collective plus a $1000 short course voucher for with the Australian Institute of Management (AIM), complimentary entry to the Real Media Awards ‘Best Emerging Talent’ category and access to TRMC events, awards and industry sessions. The prize is judged by an industry panel.

The Supplier 50 recognises those working for supply companies. Supplier 50 recipients will be judged on the quality of their submission based on their achievements over the last year. There is no overall winner – all recipients will be acknowledged in alphabetical order at the ProPrint Awards in Sydney in November and in the December issue of ProPrint magazine.

This year also represents the launch of the inaugural Industry Achievement Award – an exclusive award honouring the work of an Outstanding Achiever in Print, someone who has dedicated their life to the industry. The Top 10 Power 50 2020 representatives and our platinum sponsor, Durst, will decide who deserves this exclusive honour.

Nominations are now open for each of these categories. We urge you to nominate who you think deserves to be recognised and honoured in 2021. This year’s ProPrint Awards would not be possible without the support of our generous sponsors. Our platinum sponsor is Durst with DIC, Fujifilm, HP and Orafol providing gold sponsor support. Emerging 50 Foundation Partner, Media Super, is again supporting the Emerging 50 with gold level support.

Our silver sponsors are Ball & Doggett, Bright Print Group, Cactus Imaging, Centrum Printing, EFI, Foxcil, Graph-Pak, Lamson Paragon Group of Companies, printIQ and Visual Connections.
We thank all of our valued sponsors and supporters as without them the ProPrint Awards would not be possible.
