The awards were live streamed due to coronavirus, with printers watching the video to see the state by state announcements.

As a Gold winner for South Australia, Detpak Cartons will now go into the National Print Awards, also live-streamed, and due to take place on Friday 17 July.

To be recognised across gold and silver in multiple categories was a testament to the work of the Detpak Cartons team.

For the Australian Distilling Co., the introduction of their recent Sydney, Brisbane and Perth gins was a new venture to reflect the spirit of each city.

Both the Brisbane and Perth gin cartons were recognised across multiple categories of the PICA acknowledgements. 

Chivas Regal cartons were awarded with gold in Printer of the Year offset and Printer of the Year Packaging.

This product packaging required multiple artwork steps and processes to manage the complexity of the design.

"The Chivas showcases our ability to bring together complex designs and layers to produce a functional, yet award-winning display carton."
