Visual Connections and PVCA Support Female Apprentices at Print and Prosecco Events

Women in Print has announced support from the Print & Visual Communication Association and Visual Connections in sponsoring female apprentices in Signs & Graphics and Commercial Print, to attend the upcoming Print & Prosecco events this month.

Print & Prosecco events are an evening of networking for women in the industry to build their network. They are also for knowledge sharing, and support professional development and growth.

 “We are delighted to extend a warm welcome to talented female apprentices from the industry who will be joining us at our next Print & Prosecco night and becoming part of our Women in Print community. We are fortunate to have the generous support of Visual Connections and the Print & Visual Communication Association, who have sponsored their tickets to attend this event. This support exemplifies our industry's commitment to fostering diversity and providing opportunities for emerging talent. It’s fantastic to see a growing number of emerging female apprentices choosing to pursue careers in the print industry. This is an important step towards a more equitable and prosperous future for our field,” said Rita Karagiannis, the Victorian Patron of Women in Print and Group Account Director at IVE Group.

Sarah Moore, General Manager of Visual Connections, added, “We are pleased to be able to provide support to the female apprentices across the signage and display sector as they embark on their journey in the print industry. This event promises to be a fantastic networking opportunity for them, enabling them to connect with seasoned professionals and other women who share their passion for print.”

Registration for Print & Prosecco in Melbourne (27 October)  and Adelaide (26 October) is open, and tickets are still available for both events at Print & Prosecco Tickets.

The events promise an evening of networking, education, and celebration of the accomplishments of women in the print industry. Attendees can expect insightful discussions, opportunities to connect with industry peers, and a chance to enjoy the camaraderie of fellow industry professionals.

“Celebrating the diversity of our industry is not just a goal; it's an imperative. Supporting female apprentices to engage with their industry peers is a cornerstone of our commitment to equality and progress. In supporting their active participation, we are able to bring our female apprentices on the journey, ensuring a vibrant and inclusive future for print,” commented Kellie Northwood, Chief Executive Officer of the Print & Visual Communication Association and outgoing Hon. Secretary for Women in Print.

Stephanie Gaddin, Women in Print Treasurer and Editor of Digital Image Magazine, is liaising with relevant educational institutions to allocate the event tickets. Apprentices who wish to attend under this sponsorship announcement are advised to speak to their teacher first or contact [email protected] to register their interest.

Sandy Aspinall, the South Australian Patron, Deputy Chair of Women in Print and Director of Creative Juice SA, concluded, “An amazing opportunity for young women just starting their career in the industry to come along and meet and socialise with ladies across the sector. They will be welcomed with open arms, and there will be plenty of friendly faces, and supportive, inspirational advice will be on hand, I’m sure.”
