The Rising Star Awards are the biggest single awards programme in our industry. Winners receive grants of up to £1500 to invest in development to achieve their ambitions and grow their future potential.

We all recognise the importance of nurturing and developing new talent in our industry. Help this future talent shine brightly by encouraging potential Rising Stars in your business to apply for the awards.

Previous winners have used the funding to invest in developing skills beyond necessary employer and role training, skills which have helped them grow their future potential in print and brought fresh ideas, knowledge and capability into the businesses they work for.

Watch previous Rising Star Award winners, and print industry managers, chat about the benefits of the scheme for them, and their businesses

David Richards

“The Rising Star Awards help engage our younger people to look at their career and what they want to get from the business, and what they want to get from training. Supporting our Rising Stars’ entries was a really positive move for us, and I can definitely see a real change in their professional approach to their roles.”

David Richards, Managing Director, Amberley Labels

What the Awards can fund

The awards aren’t designed to replace necessary employer training, and we encourage all applicants to discuss the opportunity with their manager, mentor or HR to focus on what opportunities would be most beneficial for their current role and future career plan.

2023’s Rising Star Awards are now closed, but the Awards will re-open early in 2024. Sign up to our newsletter to be first to hear more, and contact if you have any questions.
