Call for Entries

2021 Print Excellence Awards

The 2021 Print Excellence Awards contest will officially kick off in September, but you are encouraged to set aside your entries or submit them early! We will gladly pick up and store your entries as soon as you have them identified for the contest.

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 or even a Best of Region award at the regional level.  These awards are presented in January and February at our Printing Week Celebrations.  

Best of Category winners receive recognition and exposure throughout the year by way of:

  • Press Releases
  • Marketing Materials
  • Local, State and National Award Ceremonies/Banquets
  • Industry Newsletters
  • Showcased at Special Events
  • Free entry into the PIA Premier Print Awards

If you want to prepare entries early for the 2021 competition, please use the PEA 2020 materials.
