The Printing Industry Creativity Awards are continuing with Victoria’s event held on Wednesday night with around 120 attendees celebrating the achievements of the past 12 months.
In all 52 gold, silver and bronze medals were announced across a number of categories with Adams Print, Press Print and Chapel Press dominating the haul at the Royce Hotel in Melbourne.
Two Media Super Young Executives of the Year were also announced with Christina Condos from Labelhouse and Lisa Schumacher from Print 2 Metal both taking home the gong.
They and the other gold medal winning companies will now go in the running for the Australian title at the National Print Awards in August with the winners of that then having the opportunity to show their work at the Print2Parliament event scheduled for later in the year.
Three international judges assessed each work individually before making their decision on the winners with the event supported by Media Super, Ball & Doggett and Epson Australia.
Printing Industries Association of Australia president Walter Kuhn said, “We are delighted that the event was so well received by our industry. The team worked diligently to raise the standard of the event to one that would appropriately reflect the deep respect the association has for the exemplary work produced by Victorian printing, packaging the visual communications sector”.
Stephen Assimo, regional manager for growth Media Super (Victoria), offered his congratulations for the winners of the Young Executive award.
The next state PICA event is on in Perth this Saturday July 13 with the Queensland event to be held on July 24.
