The Print Futures Awards open for entries

The Printing Charity's Print Futures Awards 2020 is open for entries, offering people aged 18 to 30 working in UK print-related organisations the opportunity to apply for grants of up to £1,500 to help develop their careers.

The charity is hoping to hear from people "looking to develop their practical and personal workplace skills, studying for sector-specific qualifications or those with clear plans in place to take their first step into the sector".

Printing Charity chief executive Neil Lovell said: “This year we’d like to hear from people, who are keen to develop their softer skills such as courses and training for presentation skills, problem solving, and leadership. These are often overlooked but can make a real difference to someone’s development.”

In July 2019, a record 93 winners were presented with their Print Futures Awards, at a reception at the House of Lords. Winners included Saraband digital and production co-ordinator Elizabeth Beck, Carnegie Publishing book design and publishing assistant Srishti Kadu, Trigger Publishing junior editor Kasim Mohammed and Zoe Turner, who is head of publicity and outreach at Comma Press.
