Louise Hope receives Kathy Woodward Award for Learning
This year's winner is Louise Hope, On-Demand Bench Hand at Precision Printing. She intends to put the prize money towards the purchase of a laptop, which will enable her to further her studies and improve her IT skills.
On her achievement, Louise said, "I am very delighted and proud to have won the Kathy Woodward Award. This will help me a great deal in my BPIF Managers Course Level 2. It has been a privilege and an honour to be awarded this as Kathy Woodward was a great leader and someone who we all should hope to aspire to be like."
Launched in July 2015, in memory of the BPIF's much loved CEO, Kathy Woodward, who sadly passed away a year previously, the £1,000 Award - sponsored by Webmart - supports individuals in the print, packaging and graphic design industries to further their careers. Applicants were asked to submit a 500-word proposal on how they would spend the money in order to develop their careers.

Technology has revolutionised most industries, but none more than print. And it is technology that's driving the photo personalisation market across the globe. The introduction of the smartphone with its integrated camera has galvanised users into wanting to do much more with their images than just share them in cyberspace. Users are starting to realise that they can design and order an unparalleled number of personalised photo products from their mobile devices, using images that are stored on their phones.
