Print Futures Awards 2018


The Print Futures Awards are part of our educational initiatives to help people develop their careers in the UK printing, paper, publishing, packaging and graphic arts sectors.

The Awards are grants of up to £1,500 each to help UK residents aged 18 to 30 years pay for recognised UK courses for a career in printing, paper, publishing, packaging, and graphic arts. Applications are invited from people who intend or are studying, are working in the industry and want to develop their workplace skills, are apprentices or studying for NVQs in print-related organisations.

Previous winners have used their grants to pay for full- or part-time UK courses, course materials, design software, laptops, and travel and living costs while studying.
This year we would particularly like to see more applications from people working in SMEs, including apprentices and those studying for NVQs. Applications for this year's Awards are now open and will close on Sunday 29th April 2018 at 11.59pm. For more information and to fill out an application form online, please visit our website.

We have already had 44 applications since opening so make sure to apply now!

All winners will automatically join our Print Futures Awards Alumni Programme, where we share opportunities we hear about through our industry partners and, most importantly, find out how our Award winners' careers are progressing.
