The ProPrint Emerging 50 recognises the industry’s rising stars. Emerging 50 nominees include graphic designers, prepress operators, production assistants, postpress supervisors and finishing specialists as well as employees responsible for distribution, sales, administration and account management with approximately five years or less experience working in the industry. Recipients of the Emerging 50 will be judged on the quality and the detail provided within their submission and the supplementary materials provided. It is possible to nominate more than one person and it is also possible to have more than one Emerging 50 recipient from the same company. Self nominations are accepted.
Emerging 50 nominees also have the opportunity to apply for a 12-month mentorship prize in partnership with The Real Media Collective which includes a $1000 voucher for a short course with the Australian Institute of Management (AIM). Other inclusions in the mentorship prize are complimentary entry in The Real Media Awards ‘Best Emerging Talent’ category and access to all The Real Media Collective events, awards and industry sessions. The Mentorship prize is judged by an industry panel.
All Emerging 50 recipients will be acknowledged in alphabetical order at the ProPrint Awards in Sydney in November and in the December issue of ProPrint magazine.
