PrintWeek Awards 2024

Recognising and rewarding excellence

Welcome to the PrintWeek Awards 2024.

This is our 14 th edition. The PrintWeek Awards was launched in 2009. Our aim: to celebrate the best in Indian packaging and print.

Our theme in 2024 is: rewriting the rules.

Tiny brief about the previous editions. More than hundred print and packaging companies across India submit thousand samples. On the Awards Night we hand over the Prism to the worthy winners. Unlike the other Awards in India, our Awards are judged by a respected group of print buyers, packaging heads, publishers, designers and technology specialists.

As I have done in the past, I've compiled a few essential hints and tips to ensure you can secure glory at the PrintWeek Awards 2024.

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 and packaging jobs you have produced.

Less is best. Remember, during judgment week, the jury scrutinises hundreds of entries. Don't over-burden them with excess information.

Context is everything. The judges are experts in their field, but they may not know the project for which your 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 solid judgment on the performance of your job. You won't make it to the shortlist if you don't provide enough information.

Remember, you are being judged for FOUR jobs. This means you are not being judged for one single piece. So, please don't send us four samples of the same job. Remember: you have to impress the jury with a variety of tech-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 and packaging 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 companies a day after judgment day.

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

Good luck.
