SWUG QualityAwards

This year’s SWUG Quality Awards were hotly contested. The level of entries were well above last year’s and often only minor variances separated the Gold Awards winners from the Silver and Bronze winners.

Producing quality results like these during production runs, shows the pride and passion that still exists in our industry, proving printed material to be a viable carrier of advertising in a very competitive market, NZME, PMP Ltd, Fairfax Media Christchurch, and Allied Press took the top honours in the SWUG NZ 2016 Honours List, with PMP actually taking two of the five categories and scooping the pool with every place-getter in Retail Catalogues.
