2020 Pride In Print Awards Entry Changes

Following on from the success of the 2019 Awards and recommendations from the 2019 Judging panels – Pride In Print has updated the entry categories for the 2020 Awards.

Major changes are:

  • the introduction of Structural Design Packaging
  • the separation of Flexible Packaging entries from Paper and Board Packaging
  • the refinement of the Sign and Display and Label areas to ensure work being undertaken in this area is fairly captured
  • The separation of Self Promotion into a stand-alone category

Most categories have had small refinements as the Awards continue to evolve and capture an ever-changing marketplace. Entry deadlines have also changed and early entry will close January 17th 2020.

The 2020 Entry Form is now available on www.prideinprintawards.co.nz. For any further information call the Awards Management team on 04 237 0482.
