2021 Power 50 

Welcome to the new look Power 50. In response to industry feedback, the ProPrint team has tweaked the Power 50 so now only the top 20 nominated industry leaders will be ranked in this 100% peer-voted award – everyone else was acknowledged in alphabetical order at the ProPrint Awards in Sydney on 26 November and in the December issue of ProPrint magazine. Nominees were able to nominate more than one person and it was possible to have more than one Power 50 nominee from the same company. Self nominations were also accepted. This was a peer-voted award and all nominees had the opportunity to judge. The results were verified by an external auditor, PKF International.
