Some 125 people applied for the 2020 Print Futures Awards

This year’s awards received 125 applications and 64 shortlisted for interviews, before the list was whittled down to 44 youngsters, each of which received a grant of up to £1,500.

The initiative seeks to support people aged 18 and 30 that are pursuing careers in the print and related industries.

Neil Lovell, chief executive of The Printing Charity, says: “We’re really proud to have achieved 44 winners this year. We could have postponed the awards, for obvious reasons, but decided it was important to keep them running and we are really pleased we did as this year’s winners are a positive reminder of the talent and potential of young people working in the sector.

“It’s easy to forget the future when we’re in the middle of a crisis but these winners are the sector’s future. This year’s awards more than ever have shown the enthusiasm and commitment of the new generation to a sector they see as a rewarding, long-term career choice.”
