PrintWeek Awards launched in India

PrintWeek India has launched PrintWeek Awards, an annual hunt to find print’s brightest and best companies and rising stars.

The awards will be announced in 17 categories, as well as an award recognising the PrintWeek India Printer of the Year. The judging process will take place in July. Shortlists of finalists will be published in PrintWeek India's 14 August issue and the winners will be announced in the 11 September issue. The deadline for entries is 30 June.

Andrew Robert James, publisher, PrintWeek India and director, Haymarket Media India said, “We have been running the PrintWeek Awards in the UK and in Germany for a number of years. Now that PrintWeek, which was launched last year in India, is established, it was a natural progression to take the opportunity to celebrate and reward the print industry and excellence in the print industry in India.”

Explaining the reason behind launching the awards in India, Ramu Ramanathan, editor, PrintWeek India said, “The print industry is growing. Its twice the size of the pharma industry and on par to the Rs 80,000 crore diamond industry. Segments like packaging, book printing, labels, OOH are strong. There is highly creative work for the domestic market as well print jobs which are being exported. This is the best time to launch the awards. We will have a neutral jury of technical specialists, print buyers and our editorial team UK. In India, awards get ghettoised into sectors and regions. PrintWeek Awards will be all encompassing.”

Printweek India is published by Haymarket Media (India), publishers of Campaign India.
