Pittsburgh, PA--Printing Industries of America is now accepting submissions for the 2020 Premier Print Awards competition, marking the program's 72nd year honoring print excellence. The international competition is open to all companies involved in the creation or production of print communications, as well as students and student groups from high school, vocational school, or college print production programs.
In light of the global novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the entry window of this year's competition will be extended. All entries must be received by July 31, 2020, and may be submitted at awards.printing.org. An early-bird discount is available for entries received and processed before June 15, 2020.
Entries are all competing for the coveted Best of Category "Benny" award, which is only bestowed to print projects that exhibit the highest level of craftsmanship and execution. Represented by a Benjamin Franklin statue, the award symbolizes the highest print industry standards on a global level. Works may also be recognized with an Award of Recognition or Certificate of Merit.
Entrants can submit to more than 100 individual categories ranging from traditional print items like brochures, binders, and magazines, to more unique categories including "Special Innovation," or, "They Said It Couldn't Be Done." There is no limit to the number of pieces that may be entered or the number of categories in which a piece may be entered.
Due to the shifting nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, the decision to hold an awards gala and details regarding the distribution of awards to honorees will be determined at a later date.
