FAQ's

Why should I enter?

What makes these awards so special?

We don't think it's fair to judge a company by one job. So we ask entrants to send in four print samples of four different print jobs. This ensures we can measure the consistency as well as the quality of the output.

What are the 'Quality' Awards?

The 'Quality' Awards offer you an opportunity to show you have what it takes. You could send entries for 'Quality' Awards in labels, magazines, fine art, posters (please refer to Quality Awards on the fifth page). Please ensure you send four print samples in each category.

What are the 'Performance' Awards?

We believe a printer should be judged on a body of work, not just one single piece of print. Four print samples of four different jobs enable the judges to appreciate your prowess in as wide a variety of skills as possible. You may enter in more than one category but each category must be accompanied with four print samples.

For each entry there is a fee of Rs 3,000 (plus taxes) payable, for earlybird it will be Rs 2,500 plus taxes

Who judges the entries?

We think the most demanding judge is your customer. Therefore, as in 2009 till now, PrintWeek India will use a team of expert print buyers to form the judging panel. The panels are then split to allow each judge to concentrate on categories within his or her chosen field of print buying.

Please note: As mentioned earlier, the Performance Awards are judged separately by our official auditors.
