The Print, Design & Marketing Awards are designed to acknowledge print companies that embrace quality and creativity in production. We will be looking to honour not just the work that print companies do for their customers, but also the work they and their partners do for themselves – the marketing activity, both printed and digital, that is helping to drive their businesses forward. By highlighting the best marketing collateral, websites and social media activity that printing companies in the UK are running, we also hope to further the spread of good marketing practice throughout the printing industry, and help businesses within the industry to become stronger and more relevant in today’s market. While the ‘Marketing Awards’ will give weight to the business impact of printers’ own marketing activity, the ‘Print & Design Awards’ focus on quality and creativity in print production and design. The awards are open to printers of all disciplines – offset, digital or other processes – and will be assessed by an independent panel of judges.
