New Supreme Award Trophy

New Supreme Award Trophy


Click for big version.

A brand new Supreme Award trophy will be bestowed at this year’s Pride In Print Awards Night on Friday May 23 at Auckland’s Sky City.

Pride In Print manager Sue Archibald says the design, which is currently being finalised by experienced Wellington-based creative firm Anderson Design, will be only the third incarnation of the Supreme Award.

“We have deliberately changed the design each decade so as to ensure there will only ever be ten of each trophy in existence,” says Ms Archibald.

With the deadline for late entries to this year’s Awards set to close at 5pm this Friday (February 28), Ms Archibald is hopeful all producers of printing excellence in New Zealand will have taken their opportunity to partake.

“Entry levels look good -- and are up on last year’s numbers -- and being the first Awards Night with the new design, the Supreme Award will be a first-win opportunity.

“Service Printers is to date the only firm that has won each of the previous two designs, which they get to keep forever and hold in pride of place at their Wellington offices.

“The question is can they claim all three, will another printer join them in the elite status of holding two trophy designs or will we have an inaugural winner?”

Ms Archibald hopes to be able to unveil the new design and marketing slogan for this year’s Awards, by the end of March.

Meanwhile, all winning entries will again be afforded premium display at Foodtech Packtech, the largest national trade event for the New Zealand food, beverage, packaging and manufacturing industries.

Being held at the ASB Showgrounds in Auckland on September 23-25, the event is expected to attract over 3000 visitors.

“Providing a professional and comprehensive sales and marketing platform, Foodtech Packtech enables industry buyers, suppliers and educators to come together, share ideas and develop business relationships,” continues Ms Archibald.

“This event provides an excellent opportunity for winning work -- particularly anyone involved in the food packaging and labelling sector -- to reach a large buyer market.”

Sky City : Auckland Convention Centre Cost Jumps By A Fifth

SkyCity Entertainment Group, the casino and hotel operator, is in talks with the government on how to fund the increased cost of as much as $130 million to build an international convention centre in downtown Auckland, with further gambling concessions ruled out. The Auckland-based company has increased its estimate to build the centre to between $470 million and $530 million as the construction boom across the country drives up building costs and design changes add to the bill.
