PrintWeek Awards to recognise Covid-19 frontline warriors
Considering the pandemic and the wrath it brought upon the print and and packaging industry in the last couple of years, PrintWeek Awards will be recognising those who exceptionally survived it. The pandemic fallout continues to impact the industry as print businesses hit the buffers and try to survive. There have been innumerable instances of debts and turnover plummeting. In all this there is a ray of hope. This is what PrintWeek is celebrating during the 12th edition of its Annual Awards.

Under our latest Special Covid-19 Awards, there are five different categories to identify and celebrate the achievements during the pandemic period. The categories are as follows.
Most Challenging Project during Covid-19
This category aims to recognise the company’s project that demonstrated the best use of available resources or technology, the duress under which the printed project was produced.
The award will be judged on one project or campaign that the entering print company has both developed and executed itself or in collaboration with an agency or client. The project can be print, digital or experiential based or a combination of all three.
Factory of the Year during Covid-19
This category aims to recognise the business, which demonstrated excellence and resilience despite the complications and uncertainties brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic. The company’s extra commitment in keeping their employees working, paid and safe during the pandemic, will come under focus.
Customer Service Firm during Covid-19
This award recognises the importance of world-class customer service among the packaging and print businesses, and that successful companies have to provide much more than 'just ink on paper'. It will be awarded to the company that demonstrates exemplary performance in offering innovative customer service solutions to customers. This could involve solving a specific problem(s) or thinking proactively on behalf of the customer.
Essential Service Provider during Covid-19
While hospitals and pharma, food, milk and few other companies providing relief or service during Covid-19 were considered as essential service, packaging and printing, too, was part of that support system. This category of Award aims to identify the most impactful company that supported customers with packaging and print requirements for end-user utilisation.
Frontline Team Member during Covid-19
The Covid-19 pandemic has affected everyone on this planet. Hence, there will be one team – it may be a one-member team or more than one – in your company that worked valiantly over the past two years, to see that the business sustains. This Award aims to recognise the heroic work the team has done since the beginning of 2020 to keep their company and its business running, safe, and its products safely produced and supplied.
