Print industry members who visit the Pride In Print website on Thursday night can participate in this year’s awards announcement.
All through the country, entrants will hold their own awards parties and they can share their photographs with Pride In Print organisers for everyone to see.
The Pride In Print website will release the names of all gold winners at 3.30pm. An hour later, the virtual presentation will announce the process winners; the category winners; the training awards, including Apprentice of the Year; and the supreme award winner.
The presentation will announce the companies reaching the 50 Gold Medal and 100 Gold Medal Club.
Jamie Fitzgerald to emcee
Organisers have chosen adventurer Jamie Fitzgerald to emcee the awards. No stranger to adversity, Fitzgerald has walked unaided to the South Pole and he holds the world record for rowing across the Atlantic Ocean. A double New Zealand representative and chief executive of Inspiring Performance, he fronts television documentaries such as First Crossings and Intrepid New Zealand. These have aired around the world.
Sue Archibald, Pride In Print Awards manager, says, “Jamie has faced incredible challenges in search of his goals and, given today’s current climate, we see him as a perfect fit for the emcee role for the 2020 Pride In Print Awards.”
