Winners will be invited to a virtual celebration this summer

The awards are designed to help young people invest in their personal and professional career development in the UK print, paper, publishing, and packaging sectors.

Formerly the Print Futures Awards, the awards were rebranded this year and The Printing Charity says the new name better reflects the multifaceted sector.

The charity received 133 applications this year, and Neil Lovell, chief executive of The Printing Charity says they demonstrated the “range of opportunities on offer from the technical to the creative”.

The roles of the winners vary and include apprentice engineer, HSE officer, commissioning editor, technical sales manager, production supervisor, and creative marketing manager.

The recipients of this year’s awards give us much to be proud of as a sector. They represent some of the very best talent and potential right now and we know they will all go far in their chosen field

Lovell says: “The recipients of this year’s awards give us much to be proud of as a sector. They represent some of the very best talent and potential right now and we know they will all go far in their chosen field.

“It’s particularly heartening to be able to share their success at a time when we are all looking to a more positive future.”

The money will allow winners to take part in courses to build core and practical skills, improve soft skills, develop leadership and management skills, and also receive specialist coaching.

Judges of the awards were picked from a number of companies including The Telegraph, The Publishing Training Centre, ICTJ, Arjowiggins, IPIA, Fedrigoni, and more.
