New Categories of Awards to be introduced in this edition!
PAMEX will play host to a glittering awards ceremony at the Gala Exhibitors’ Evening on the 29 March 2023. AIFMP has decided to institute several new awards to add to the prestigious NAEP and VCPLA Awards that were given away in the last edition.
National Awards for Excellence in Printing (NAEP):
These awards were instituted by the AIFMP in 1999 to celebrate the quest for quality that is at the heart of the printing industry. The aim of these awards is to showcase the achievements and contribution of Indian printers and are presented to individuals and organisations for doing exceptional work in their segments.
International Awards for Excellence in Printing (IAEP):
To make the NAEP even more valuable and visible at the international arena, AIFMP is planning to announce a new segment of awards for the international entries- the ‘International Awards for Excellence in Printing’ (IAEP). With other terms and conditions would be like the NAEP, the categories would be limited for this set of awards.
Viren Chhabra Print Leadership Award (VCPLA):
These awards were established in 2019, in the memory of Viren Chhabra, the most loved mentor figure of India’s Print Industry- who went far beyond standard obligations to become a significant force in shaping the business of printed communications. Viren Chhabra Print Leadership Award is recognized throughout the graphic art industry as the OSCAR for printing in India.
Prof. (Dr.) Rajendrakumar Anayath, Vice Chancellor, DCR University of Science & Technology has been declared the recipient of the VCPLA Award for 2022 and he will be felicitated with the honour at the PAMEX 2023.
