Applications for the Rising Star Awards close on March 7th

The awards have taken on a new name to better showcase that they are open to applications across a number of sectors and not print-specific.  

Entries for this year’s awards are now open, with those that enter being in with a change of winning up to £1,500 towards the cost of training, professional accreditation or equipment to support career development.

Applicants must be aged 18 to 30, be a resident in the UK, work in the sector and be clear on how the award will advance their career.

Neil Lovell, chief executive of The Printing Charity, comments: “Refreshing the name and branding makes it clear that the awards are not just about print but all the many aspects of our multifaceted sector.

We are excited to see who applies this year and are asking businesses to encourage their rising stars to apply

“The sector continues to change and our awards, the largest single awards in our sector, are about celebrating the new generation of talent working within it; young people who are already demonstrating great potential.

“We’ve had nearly 500 winners since the awards began and, let’s face it, after 2020 we need as much positivity about the sector and its future stars that we can get.

“We are excited to see who applies this year and are asking businesses to encourage their rising stars to apply.”
