FAQs

1. When should I enter?

Once you’ve filled in the entry form, and put together all the information, the entry should be sent to the Awards office where it will be classified, checked and cross-referenced.

2. How much does it cost?

For each entry there is a standard entry fee of Rs 3,000 + 18% GST as applicable if paid until 8 July 2024. After which, it will be Rs 4,000 + 18% GST.

Cheques should be made payable to ‘Haymarket SAC Publishing (India) Pvt Ltd’.

Note: Entry fee does not apply in the Student of the Year category

3. Why should I enter?

If you win a PrintWeek Award, you win more than just the respect of your colleagues. Our Awards give you a unique marketing advantage over your competitors.

4. What makes these Awards so special?

We don’t think it’s fair to judge a company by one job. So, we ask entrants for FOUR different jobs. This ensures we can measure the consistency as well as the quality of the output.

5. Why four different job samples?

We believe a printer or converter should be judged on a body of work, not just one single piece. Four different jobs per entry enable the judges to appreciate your prowess in as wide a variety of tech-skills as possible.

6. What are the ‘Quality’ Awards?

The ‘Quality’ Awards judge the quality of output in several different categories (please refer to Quality Awards category descriptions).

The entrants are expected to send in one sample each of four different jobs. This ensures we can measure the consistency as well as the quality of the output.

7. What are the ‘Performance’ Awards?

The ‘Performance’ Awards are judged on the financial performance, strategic growth, investment in technology and people of the company in the previous fiscal year.

Please note: All your data will be handled with the strictest confidentiality.

8. What are the Special Awards?

This is the third edition of PrintWeek Awards where we have the category: Special Industry Awards, a total of five awards. These will be presented to recognise factories and teams in the Indian print and packaging industry who have gone above and beyond the call of duty.

9. Who judges the entries?

We think the most demanding judge is your customer. Therefore, PrintWeek will use a team of expert print buyers and packaging heads to form the judging panel. On board will also be experts who will evaluate the finesse and functionality of the job. The panel is then split to allow each judge to concentrate on categories within his or her chosen field of expertise.

10. Shortlist

A list of the shortlisted companies will be published in the September issue of PrintWeek and will be available on our website www.printweek.in and www.printweekindiaawards.com

11. What about the big night?

The PrintWeek Awards Night will be held on 23 September 2024. Even if you don’t enter or don’t make it to the shortlist, you can still come along to an evening, which is truly a celebration of print.
