As the Pride In Print Awards puts out a call for entries, PrintNZ continues to promote print through campaigns and initiatives.
Pride In Print Awards
PrintNZ has called for entries for the Pride In Print Awards. Ruth Cobb, chief executive at PrintNZ, says, “This year we are encouraging all the entry details to be entered on line to ensure that we can read the data correctly and to save time for both parties.
“We have updated the entry form to pre-populate some of the fields. You can also save your entries part way through and return to them later if you don’t have all the details.
If you have any queries please email Pride In Print Awards manager Tania McDougall – [email protected]

Printed In New Zealand
PrintNZ has also launched the Printed In New Zealand logo. Its creation forms part of the push to keep things local and support New Zealand businesses.
The Printed In New Zealand campaign encourages local printers to feature the Printed In New Zealand logo on their work. As a result, they promote and celebrate the print industry to the domestic market. At the same time, it also champions New Zealand’s print exports.
Cobb says, “This is about being proud of the work our industry produces. Also, we can let people know the work was produced in New Zealand by a member of PrintNZ.”
There is a one-off set up fee for the logo. PrintNZ will supply the logo in a number of formats for print. The logo carries a member identification number to avoid unauthorised use.
The Covid-19 pandemic has seen a considerable volume of printed work returning to New Zealand. Cobb says, “PrintNZ wants to make sure we keep the work here.”

People in Print & Rising Stars of Print Awards
PrintNZ is supporting the People in Print & Rising Stars of Print Awards with New Zealand Printer Magazine.
Cobb says, “If there is someone in your business that has made an exceptional contribution this year, or been a champion of others in your business, or in their community, then please put their name forward. There are a lot of silent heroes in our industry and we want to recognise them.”
“The Rising Stars of Print Awards recognise the people that are starting to shine in your business and what better way to acknowledge their talent than putting them forward for an award.”
