The Pride in Print Awards showcase the best of the best in New Zealand print. They are the showpiece of the highest standards in the industry and the printers who have attained these standards.

Judging is based on technical excellence in all facets of the print production process, and takes into account the potential and the limits of that process or processes, the materials and the equipment used. Elements of typography and good design are part of the judgment, as is the effective and innovative use of materials.
