Print Excellence Awards Contest 2024
The 2024 Print Excellence Awards (PEA) contest is open! The submission deadline is set for November 30, 2023. We encourage you to begin the submission process. We will gladly pick up and store your entries as soon as you have them identified for the contest.
Graphic Media Alliance members participate in the Print Excellence Awards for various reasons. Whether to assist in marketing their services to current and prospective clients, celebrate the craftsmen and craftswomen working behind the scenes, partake in celebratory events, or make their industry peers envious of their tremendous talent, these are all great reasons. But, for most of our members, it is about the opportunity to unite and celebrate the craft of printing.
For a special promotion this year, every company that is entering for the first time can enter one entry for free. We are also continuing the buy-one-get-one free promotion. For the first five entries, you will receive a second entry at no charge. Double your recognition and marketing potential for the same entry fee!
Every year out-of-state expert judges are brought in to review the entries and determine if they are worthy of a Bronze, Silver, Gold award, as well as a Best of Region Award in our 4 participating regions. These awards will be presented at our Print Week Celebrations in early spring.
From there, entries are advanced into the Best of Category competition, and ultimately one company per division will take home a Best of Show award. Other awards include the Judges Choice awards, as well as the Rising Star award given to a new participant in the competition. These awards are presented at our Grand Ceremony in the late summer.
