Fairfax, Virginia — The Academy of Screen Printing Technology is accepting submissions for the Student Screen Printing Awards Competition, which selects the best prints produced during the 2006–2007 school year.
“This contest is an excellent opportunity for students who want a career in the specialty imaging industry. They’ll have the chance of showing their work to industry leaders,” said Dawn Hohl, SPTF Technical Training Manager.
The competition is open to secondary and post-secondary schools — including high schools, vocational schools, technical schools, colleges and universities — holding membership(s) for SGIA, FESPA or the Asia-Pacific Screen Printing & Graphic Imaging Association.
Students may enter samples within any category as individual work or within a team. Categories include:
- Textile — single-color, multicolor, spot color, index and simulated process, and four-color process.
- Paper — single-color, multicolor and four-color process
- Plastic, glass, metal or wood — single-color, multicolor and four-color process.
- Original serigraphs on any substrate
All submitted work will be judged and displayed at SGIA ’07 (Orlando, Florida; October 24–27, 2007). For more information on the contest, visit SGIA.org/aspt.
