Award for Up and Coming Print Professionals Now Open
The Print Futures Awards Scheme 2016 is now accepting applications from 16-30 year olds who work, or aspire to work, in the printing publishing and graphic arts related industries.
Since 2003, The Print Futures Awards Scheme has empowered numerous creative young people in the UK, enabling them to pursue their ambitions within the printing, publishing and graphic arts related industries. This scheme offers 16-30 year old aspiring or working print professionals an opportunity to shine in a competitive sector through the potential of winning an educational and training based grant worth up to £1,500. Now the application process for the 2016 scheme has begun.
The awarded grant must be used to contribute towards the financial costs of a print related course or relevant training sessions. Previous recipients have used the award money to study towards innovative professional qualifications such as marketing or graphic design. Many recipients have since moved on to work in professional fields such as fashion and sports. This scheme would be suitable for a person who is looking to develop their skills and knowledge in their chosen field, whether or not they have already gained real world experience.
The Print Futures Awards scheme is made possible by the funding and support from the Printing Charity, Unite the Union, BPiF, Saxoprint, St Bride Foundation and the Book Trade Charity. Applications should be made before 27 May 2016 in order to be considered. Shortlisted candidates will be invited for interview in London between 13 and 14 June 2016. The winners will be celebrated at an awards ceremony on 19 July 2016, which will also take place in London.
