Why should you enter the PrintWeek Awards 2020?

The PrintWeek Awards are the industry’s flagship Awards scheme and culminate in the largest awards dinner in the industry, where the winners are unveiled before 900-plus guests.

The Awards are independently judged by more than 20 leading print buyers and industry experts. Our valued sponsors simply support the awards because they believe in celebrating the best the industry has to offer, they have no input in the judging process. And because we think an entry should be judged on a body of work, not just one sample, entries consist of four different samples.

This is why the PrintWeek Awards are the most credible in print, but don’t take our word for it – ask your customers.

Sponsorship

How to gain sponsorship with us?

The awards are completely independent, and are judged by professional buyers of print and leading, independent experts in the fields of finance, the environment and customer service.

This is exactly why they are so coveted by printers and respected by buyers; in short winning a PrintWeek Award means something and by sponsoring an award category you are aligning your business with not only the best of the best, but also signalling the fact that your business understands and supports printers who go the extra mile.

By becoming a sponsor you’re guaranteed months of exposure, leading up to the industry’s night of nights when you and your guests are guaranteed a prime table in the Great Room at London’s Grosvenor House hotel.

As well as conventional category sponsorships, there is also a whole host of other bespoke opportunities. We relish the challenge of coming up with innovative partnership opportunities that not only give your brand peerless exposure but also help make the PrintWeek Awards night ‘the’ event in the print industry’s calendar.

2015 was the first time we entered the PrintWeek Awards and we were really chuffed to win two categories. Whilst giving us the feel good factor, winning has also resulted in a lot of new business enquiries. The print industry still has a lot to offer and we should all do our bit to promote this amazingly diverse industry and celebrate what we do. The PrintWeek Awards is a great place to start.

Fenton Smith, director, Boss Print

The awards are a great way of publicising and providing independent endorsement of the exceptional standards our team have achieved in service, quality and environmental management. A nomination or win gives recognition and a thank you to our team for the skill, hard work and commitment which has been fundamental in enabling us to reaching these standards.

Being the winner of Industrial Digital Printer of the Year at last year’s PrintWeek Awards has propelled our profile throughout the industry. With the technology being groundbreaking and new we could not have had a better launchpad for getting it out there than this award. It has certainly changed a number of our clients minds on what is now possible to achieve in print from the data they hold. We have found that winning a PrintWeek award has been a door opener and one that we can be proud of.
