The PrintWeek India Awards gives the printers a unique chance to be judged by their toughest critics; their customers. The entries are judged by an ensemble jury of print buyers who examine the intricate details of the samples on show. Every year the benchmark set by the entries is rising.
“The samples speak out for themselves, the amount of patience, accuracy and hard work which goes down in making these samples is highly laudable. The quality on show is the best you’ll see in India,” said Ajay Takalkar of Medulla Communications, a jury member during the PrintWeek India Awards 2015.
Every year the print synergy comes together at the PrintWeek India Awards to celebrate print and honour the unsung heroes of the Indian print fraternity.
Saifee Makasarwala of Silverpoint Press, the winner of Magazine Printer of the year 2015 award during the PrintWeek India Awards said, “I consider winning the PrintWeek India Award a great achievement. It is a great honour and gives our entire team motivation to work even more diligently for our customers and our society.”
The participants can submit their entries either in the performance categories, where they are judged on the basis of their business performance during the fiscal year or quality categories, where they are judged on the basis of the samples submitted by them.
The early bird entries (before 2 August 2016) will have the privilege of a discount. The final deadline for the submission of entries is 20 August 2016.
