38th National Print Awards Friday 5 November 2021

38th National Print Awards Friday 5 November 2021

Due to a public holiday declared by the Queensland government for Friday 29 October, the awards program  has been reorganised. The PICA presentations for Victoria WA and NSW are being presented on Friday 5 November 2021 and the 38th National Print Awards will be followed immediately after and will be live-streamed around the country to the satellite events and in-home attendees.

Walter Kuhn, President of the Print & Visual Communications Association which hosts the event, said, "I don't think there's anyone who would begrudge any State the opportunity to take a break and enjoy some time away given the events of the past couple of years, but after only recently confirming Brisbane as the most viable venue for the print award presentations, the announcement by Premier Palaszczuk that the 'Ekka' public holiday would be rescheduled to the Friday of our event did take us by surprise."

"The no-doubt unintended consequence for us, and for others who had events booked that weekend, was a doubling of our staging costs overnight, coupled with the threat of cancellations from registrants keen to embrace the chance to take a few days away."

By pushing the event out once more, Kuhn says industry businesses can enjoy both the 'People's Long Weekend,' as it's known, and the National Print Awards celebrations – albeit after waiting yet another week. With varying restrictions still in place in other States, these final presentations will be a mix of in-person and live streamed events."

The WA PICAs will be announced live at a function at Crown Perth, commencing at 5 pm sharp. In Sydney, the NSW PICAs will be presented in person at Ovolo, Wooloomooloo, starting at 6 pm.

The Victorian PICAs will be announced at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre at 6.15 pm Queensland time. The proceedings will be live-streamed into Victoria (at 7:15 AEST) and SA (at 6:45 pm local time).

Patrick Condren will host the awards. Patrick is an international communication strategist with exceptional political connections and experience. A Walkley winning journalist and broadcaster with over 30 years experience in the media and political reporting.
