Established in 1993 to promote print excellence in New Zealand, the Pride in Print Awards remain the pinnacle of recognition for the best visual print communication products produced in the country. They embody a culture of excellence aimed at meeting and exceeding the customer’s needs and continuously pushing boundaries.
Pride in Print delivers its greatest tangible reward in the commercial marketplace. The awards cover each industry sector with expert panels of judges analysing every entry.
Based on technical excellence in all facets of the production process, typography and good design, the judging process allows specialists to make judgement calls based on the potential and the limits of processes and the materials and equipment used.
