Congratulations to the joint winners of this year’s Victor Watson Trophy, Sophia Djili and Agata Labedz, from De La Rue and KCS Print respectively. Alice Murray from BCQ Group was highly commended. The trophy was presented on 4th July at the BPIF’s annual All-Party Parliamentary Print Group (APPPG) reception at the House of Lords.

The Victor Watson Trophy, open to people aged 31 and under, was set up by the BPIF, The Printing Charity, and the Worshipful Company of Makers of Playing Cards, in memory of Victor Watson CBE DL, a legendary figure in print. He was a former Trustee and our President in 1992.

The award recognises outstanding achievement by young people in the printing industry. Recipients are also eligible to apply for a Print Futures Award of up to £1,500.
