UPDATE April 8 – Submissions Cancelled: Yesterday we explained the Premier Print Awards were suspended. Unfortunately, PIA made the tough decision to cancel this year’s Premier Print Awards (PPA) competition. Meaning your PPA submissions will not be judged/considered by PIA and PIA will not be giving awards this year. We are extremely disappointed about this news. But this means your PIM 2020 Star Award(s) are even more special this year! Please email Michael Packard any questions or concerns.
UPDATE April 7 – Suspended Submissions: Due to the uncertain nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, Printing Industries of America (PIA) has suspended submissions for the 2020 Premier Print Awards. We apologize for any inconvenience at this time.
UPDATE March 23 – Deadline Extended: PIA has extended the entry window for the 2020 Premier Print Awards. Those with show-stopping print projects can now submit their entries to over 100 program categories through July 31, 2020. Entries received and processed before the early-bird deadline of June 15, 2020, will receive a discounted entry rate of $87 per entry for PIA members and $174 per entry for non-members. Learn More.

UPDATE March 20 – 2020 Premier Print Awards Gala: Due to the shifting nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, the decision to hold an awards gala and details regarding the distribution of awards to honorees will be determined at a later date.
Show off your most impressive print projects and bring home the prestigious Benny statue during Printing Industries of America’s (PIA) 2020 Premier Print Awards.
The Premier Print Awards competition recognizes the highest quality printed pieces in various categories from around the world. Each year, only the most worthy pieces receive Awards of Recognition, Certificates of Merit, and the highest honor–the Benny statue. The Benny has become a universally recognized symbol for excellence in the printing industry. For seventy years, winners of the largest, most prestigious print competition in the world have leveraged this honor to gain a competitive advantage.
