2021 National Print Awards

The Media Super National Print Awards, the premier print awards in Australia, were established in 1984 to recognise and encourage the achievement of excellence in print in Australia and a Gold Medal at the Awards remains the ultimate accolade the industry can bestow.

Since these Awards were founded, the industry has consistently raised its benchmarks for quality and innovation and the Media Super National Print Awards has played an instrumental role in lifting these standards. Over the years, numerous NPA medal winners have been honoured with prestigious international awards, ensuring the NPA standard is recognised worldwide as a mark of excellence and confirming that Australian printers are the equal of their counterparts anywhere in the world.

Since 1984, many things have changed in the Australian print and graphic communications industry. Entirely new technologies have been introduced, some practices have died out, others have changed almost beyond recognition. Some things, however, remain constant; among them, the dedication, commitment and attention to detail which result in true quality. It is these things that the National Print Awards celebrates.

The Awards are run under the auspices of the Printing Industries Association of Australia. Printing Industries is an independent, specialist member-based not-for-profit national organisation representing large, medium and small businesses. Our membership covers all imaging and communication sectors, including print, prepress and design, publishing, distribution, software and hardware, paper and paper board, print consumables, packaging and flexible packaging, paper converting, binding and finishing, communication and marketing media services.
