How to Enter

Entering the Premier Print Awards is easier than you think. Simply follow the steps below and you could be on your way to winning a Benny!

All entries must be postmarked by no later than May 20, 2017.


  • Choose Your Finest Work
    Look over the print you have produced since May 1, 2016 up to April 30, 2017. The pieces you submit should be free of obvious imperfections.

    (Please note: All entries become the property of Printing Industries of America and are not returnable. Entry constitutes approval for promotional use by Printing Industries of America.)


  • Complete the Entry Form or Apply Online

    (Please note: You must complete and attach an entry form to each piece that you submit.)

    Determine the Category for Your Piece
    Each piece is entered in a specific category. 

    Don’t know which category to select? To help identify an appropriate category, consider:
    • The equipment used to produce the piece.
    • The type of process used.
    • How the piece is used.
    • The number of colors—count the number of ink colors, including varnish. Do not count the paper or substrate or any type of foil.
    • Your company size. This determines your division

Remember, you can enter a piece in more than one category!

(Please note: When you enter a piece in more than one category, you must submit the piece, an entry form, and pay a fee for each category you enter.)


  • Complete the Entry Form - visit
