Intergraf Student Award 2019

Intergraf, the European Federation for Print & Digital Communication, supports one print media student every year in their work about a relevant topic for our industry with a prize of €5,000. The annual Intergraf Student Award is presented annually to a student who is judged by a panel of experts to have made the most outstanding contribution to print media research.

Creativity and innovation in the graphical sector is supported by research and Intergraf wishes to support students producing excellent work in this field, by encouraging and awarding such good research. With our Student Award, Intergraf also aims to foster stronger links between the printing industry and its future workforce.

Master students in their final year of study, or those who finished their thesis in 2018, as well as PhD and Post-Doc students from the print media field, are eligible to apply for the 2019 award. Applicants must also be from a school or university in one of Intergraf’s member countries. Each applicant is required to draft a 2-5 page summary of his/her work in English and be available for a presentation in English at Intergraf’s next “Print Matters for the Future” conference, held on 24 May 2019.
