PrintWeek Awards 2023

Recognising and rewarding excellence

The PrintWeek Awards was launched in 2009. Our aim: to celebrate the best in Indian packaging and print. The PrintWeek Awards scheme, PrintWeek Awards 2023, has once again gone live.

A little brief about the previous edition, the 12th edition of PrintWeek Awards 2022. The 2022 Awards saw 1,000+ samples in 362 entries from 112 companies nationwide. There were 44 worthy winners, which were judged by print buyers and specialists. Despite the Covid-19 crisis, the PrintWeek Awards 2022 were bigger and better than before.

As we have done in the past, we've compiled a few essential hints and tips to ensure you can secure glory at the PrintWeek Awards 2023.

For starters, you need to enter. As they say, you have got to be in it to win it. You can choose the correct category and submit the best examples of the four print jobs you have produced.

Less is best. Remember, on judgment day, the jury scrutinises hundreds of entries. Don't over-burden them with needless information.

Context is everything. The judges are experts in their field, but they may not know the print project for which the job has been entered. Inform them. Do not ignore the rules. For instance, when we ask for full technical specifications, please send them to us. This enables our jury to make a sound judgment on the performance of your print job. You won't make it to the shortlist if you don't provide enough information.

Remember, you are being judged for FOUR print jobs. This means you are not being judged for one single piece of print. So, please don't send us four samples of the same job. Remember: you have to impress the jury with a variety of print skills.

Finally, remember who is judging. It's your customers.

We have put the judging in the hands of an independent panel of experts, a line-up of big-name print buyers for our Quality Awards. This is your chance to sell to them. In fact, in the last couple of years, our jury members fixed appointments with key printers a day after judgment day.

Now, please select the best work of print off your shop floor and send it to us.

Good luck.

Editor, PrintWeek/WhatPackaging?
