PrintIT Awards Handed Out In London
PrintIT! has held its 2012 awards ceremony in London, recognising the hard work of print and paper students across the UK.
The show attracted more than 9,000 students from 250 schools in its 2011/12 programme, with Aleesha Patel from Beauchamp School in Leicester named as the overall winner of the competition.
She collected a Fujifilm SLR camera, a Pantone Capsure tool and an all-expenses paid trip to The Hunkeler Innovations in Switzerland.
Tony Locke, managing director of Duplo and chairman of PrintIT!, said: "The print industry is an old industry but has changed so much over the last few years and we have run an apprentice scheme for over six years proving that youth works!"
HP is another company that has made efforts to recognise innovation, as it recently announced its Smart Business Awards, which aim to support small and medium-sized enterprises across the UK.
Those victorious at the event will receive a HP kit and a selection of business support services.
