Printing industry celebrates the Printing Charity’s 2023 Rising Stars 

The Printing Charity’s 2023 Rising Star Awards reception, hosted by Printing Charity President 

Emeritus Lord Black of Brentwood, was held at the House of Lords on 6th July 2023.  

Members of the print, packaging, paper, publishing and graphics industries joined the charity at the event to celebrate the achievements of this year’s Award winners, who each received grants of up to £1500 for training and development to help them shine in their careers. 

This year, Rising Star grants were awarded to 34 people aged between 18-30 from across the 

industry. There has been an increase in role diversity amongst winners. This year’s winners work in a range of roles spanning administration, client management, communications, design, editorial, finance, human resources, management, marketing, sustainability and technical expertise, plus those who have founded their own businesses. This shows the great potential for building a career in any discipline within the print sector and allied trades. 

Many applicants will use their grant to fund a portfolio of complementary courses designed to build a range of skills and boost their capability, personal growth and career potential.
