Lantern showcases tomorrow's talent at the Print Futures Awards


Our design for winners' guide is unveiled at exclusive awards evening at the House of Lords

At Lantern, we've supported the work of The Print Futures Awards for a number of years. The scheme, which offers grants of £1,500 to help people aged between 16 and 30 years, helps aspiring designers, print makers and creative professionals pay for training courses for a career in printing, publishing and packaging.

Once again we were asked to design the annual awards brochure for the event, this year reflecting the abstract ink in water pattern of the Awards logo, also branded by Lantern.

The awards, which continue to grow year after year, saw a record 88 applicants and 50 winners in 2016, each receiving their Awards at an event hosted by the Rt Hon the Baroness Dean of Thornton-le-Fylde and organised by The Printing Charity at the House of Lords.


At the event, Neil Lovell, The Printing Charity's Chief Executive and Secretary said: "We are proud of the Print Futures Awards and their continued growth. I believe that both the charity and the sector have more to do to encourage young talent.

Networking and connections are vital. We are setting up an Alumni programme for this year's and previous winners. The aim is to stay connected with them, introduce them to industry contacts and enable them to hear from leading thinkers in the sector."


Lord Black of Brentwood, Executive Director of the Telegraph Media Group and Vice President of The Printing Charity, said: "Printing and publishing are at the heart of the creative industry and we thank The Printing Charity for its work providing pathways for young people into these creative roles."
