Technical Excellence Awards – 2016 newspaper dates

This year’s Technical Excellence Awards (Single-width and Double-width categories) nominate four dates for which print products – newspapers / supplements / NIMs – should be presented for judging.

Date Clarification

Printers wishing to enter weekly newspapers may pick a print time closest to the four dates to submit – e.g. if we pick a Wednesday date, and a weekly is printed on a Thursday – we will allow the closest Thursday edition to be put forward for judging.


Entrants must send three copies of their newspapers from two of the four dates specified, or those dates closest to them for weekly publications. Two copies will be selected at random from the two different days of publication. These will be taken as the basis for evaluation.

Dates Selected for Single-width and Double-width Press categories (between June 6, 2016 to June 26, 2016):

  • Wednesday – 15 June, 2016
  • Friday – 24 June, 2016
  • Sunday – 12 June, 2016
  • Sunday – 26 June, 2016

The product must be printed between July 2, 2015 to July 8, 2016.
