The Print Futures Awards are grants of up to £1,500 each to help people aged 16 to 30 years pay for any costs associated with relevant training courses for a career in printing, publishing or graphic arts.

Stephen Gilbert, The Printing Charity’s Chief Executive, said at the event: “As one of the judges for the Awards, I am always inspired by the applicants’ enthusiasm for the industry they are joining.

“Next year I would like to see more young people applying who already work in the industry and want to undertake further training to develop their skills, including apprenticeships and NVQs. The Print Futures Awards have a vital role to play helping to train the new generation entering our industry.”
