There are new dates for two of the five PICA presentation nights, with winners going forward to the Australia’s National Print Awards.
Craftsmanship has given way to ‘creativity’ in name only, with this year’s awards the precursor to the annual NPA ‘finals’ in September.
The 38th Printing Industry Creativity Awards start with NSW on July 16 at Ovolo Wolloomooloo, and continue with Queensland PICAs at Tattersalls Club (July 23), WA’s PICAs at Crown Perth Botanical Room (July 31), Victoria’s at the Melbourne Marriott Docklands (August 6) and South Australia’s at the National Wine Centre (August 19).
Outright winners will be announced at the 38th National Print Awards dinner in Melbourne on September 30.
The evening event is one of the highlights of PacPrint (September 28-October 1) which also celebrates the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre, which opened with PacPrint in 1996.
