The printing community came out in force on Saturday night to celebrate the Printing Industries Craftsmanship Awards in style.
Andrew Macaulay, Chief Executive of Printing Industries says, “There was an obvious air of celebration and optimism in the room. The support that the industry show to each other continues to inspire me”.
Thirteen companies were recognised with medals across the 30 different print and design categories. Quality Press and Scott Print were frequent visitors to the stage, taking home a whopping 7 gold medals each and 16 medals apiece in total. The coveted Judges Award was won by Quality Press for their offset-printed book, Perth Zoo Saving Wildlife.
Amongst stiff competition, the long-term contribution of Atish Shah from Quality Press was recognised with the Media Super Industry Contribution Award.
Scott Print and Picton Press shared Future Now’s Commitment to Workforce Development Award for their commitment to recruiting and developing a flexible, diverse and suitably trained workforce.
The Environment Award that recognises and encourages those companies who are not only managing their environmental impacts to a high standard, but are seeking to build upon current practices and make further improvements was awarded to Scott Print.
Rio Chard, Chair of the Western Australia PICA Committee says “There was a real sense of change in the atmosphere. Whilst we paid homage to many legends of the industry, there was an overall excitement about what the future holds. It was great to see many diverse companies represented in the spread of wins across the evening”.
“Above all, the PICA allow our industry the opportunity to challenge each other so that we can continue to lift the bar of excellence within the WA print market. We deserve to feel proud of the work that we produce”.
