The 2017 PrintWeek Awards, the greatest and most sought after awards in the print industry.
The value of winning or being shortlisted for a PrintWeek Award can’t be overstated, both in terms of raising the profile of your company in the minds of clients, current and potential, and boosting the morale of your staff.
However, winning a PrintWeek Award isn’t easy. It’s the highest accolade in UK print, after all. But there are some simple steps you can take to give yourself the best possible chance.
Firstly, you need to enter. Obvious, I know, but you’d be surprised at the number of printers who like to complain that they “never win”, but at the same time have never entered.
Secondly, you need to ensure that you send us only the very best examples of your work. Start setting aside pristine examples of jobs so that you have the best of the bunch to choose from when you come to submit your entry.
Remember, you’re judged on a body of work, not just one single piece of print, it's one of the strengths of the PrintWeek Awards, and you should aim to demonstrate your prowess in as wide a variety of skills as possible.
Thirdly, read the rules carefully and make sure that you have submitted all the relevant information, because if we don’t have enough information to go on, you might not make it to the shortlist. If you have any questions regarding the criteria or what exactly we need, please contact our events team, who will be more than happy to help. Click here to read our guide on how to enter.
Finally, remember who’s judging the entries: your clients.
We assemble a line-up of big-name print buyers for our Quality Awards covering all of the major print disciplines and this is your chance to sell to them and their peers. Make sure your supporting citations explain exactly what makes you and the work you do so special.
Once you’ve done all this, you can sit back with confidence and wait for the shortlist in September.
