A brand new supreme award trophy design will debut at this year's Pride In Print Awards night on Friday 23 May at Sky City.
The new trophy will be unveiled by Sue Archibald, who has been the manager of Pride In Print for over 15 years.
"Following a pyramid and then plinth-based design, we have developed a trophy that reflects the new branding of the Awards programme," says Archibald.
"The four horizontal panels inserted into the stainless steel base reflect the coloured circles printed inside each pane. Wellington-based creative firm Anderson Design was the architect for both the new design and final construction."
Updating the trophy design is in keeping with tradition, she says. The Pride In Print Awards trophy design is changed once every decade.
"We are proud to be entering the third decade of Pride In Print on a very strong footing," says Archibald.
"2014 entries are higher than the previous year and work entered into the 2014 Awards is of extremely high caliber -- making the judges job very difficult indeed. The winner of this year’s Supreme Award has achieved the highest honour in the New Zealand print industry -- they will be the best of the best."
