PrintWeek Awards to Go Live Again – Twelfth Edition will Open for Entries on May 1, 2022
16 March 2022: The PrintWeek Awards will once again go live this year after a two-year pause due to the pandemic. Entries to the twelfth edition of PrintWeek Awards 2022 will officially open on May 1, 2022 and the PrintWeek Awards Night will be held on September 27, 2022.
“After being forced to pause the Awards scheme in 2020 and 2021 because of the Covid-19 pandemic, PrintWeek Awards resume, albeit in a limited capacity form,” said Sudhanva Jategaonkar, B2B Business Head at Haymarket SAC Publishing.
PrintWeek Performance Awards in 2022 will have a total of 10 awards instead of the six awards in the past eleven editions. These entries in this category will be audited plus vetted on the basis of financial as well as contribution to the industry.
In the Quality Awards, there will be 13 Awards that will celebrate “the latest and the best”. This edition of PrintWeek Awards will introduce a new category: Special Covid-19 Awards, a total of five awards will be presented to recognise factories and teams in the Indian print industry who have gone above and beyond the call of duty.
“By returning to host the annual PrintWeek Awards event, we would be celebrating the achievements of the print industry and those working in it, in the tough past two years, and have emerged unscathed,” added Jategaonkar. “As we reflect on where we are as an industry, this celebration of the extraordinary work that is accomplished each and every day by those in the print and packaging business. It also gives the industry an opportunity to savour the challenges and successes.”
The Covid-19 pandemic proved to be a crisis that humanity has faced. The Indian print industry too had its fair share of woes. But after two years of challenges, the print industry is hoping to rebound this year, though inflationary and supply concerns related to input material continue to post challenges to the print industry.
