2021 Print Excellence Awards

The 2021 Print Excellence Awards (PEA) contest submission deadline has passed and we have completed the judging and initial notification steps. See the Gold winning pieces/companies here.

PEA 2021 Participate

Plan now to attend the Grand Ceremony, held in conjunction with our annual Leadership Conference. The 2021 Millcraft Grand Ceremony is scheduled for September 13th.

THANK YOU to our sponsors for the 2021 Print Excellence Awards:

2021 PEA Platinum Sponsor

2021 PEA Gold Sponsor


2021 PEA Silver & Bronze Sponsors

This year's theme is Participation and we've added some incentives to get every company to participate. 

Every year out-of-state expert judges are brought in to review the entries and determine if they are worthy of a Bronze, Silver, Gold or even a Best of Region award at the regional level. These awards will be presented in May at our Printing Week Celebrations.  

As a new incentive this year, and to encourage all companies to participate, for your first five entries, you will receive a second entry at no charge. Double your recognition and marketing potential for the same entry fee!

Best of Category winners receive recognition and exposure throughout the year by way of:

  • Press Releases
  • Marketing Materials
  • Local/Regional and Association-wide Ceremonies/Banquets
  • Industry Newsletters
  • Showcased at Special Events

The new interactive Call for Entries form is available here:  PEA 2021 Call for Entries

Printing Note: The "Print Page" button for each category works best if you download the form prior to printing.
