The 2018 Kathy Woodward Award for Learning is now open for entries!
Launched in 2015 in memory of the BPIF's much loved CEO Kathy Woodward, who sadly passed away in 2014, the £1,000 Award – sponsored by Webmart – supports individuals in the print, packaging and graphic design industries to further their careers.
Louise Hope last year’s recipient, put the money towards her BPIF Level 2 Managers Course. Speaking about the award, Louise said, “I am very delighted and proud to have won the Kathy Woodward Award. 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.”
The 2016 winner was Melanie Fox, Artwork Supervisor at Multi Packaging Solutions, who put the prize money towards the purchase of a laptop, which enabled her to complete her studies with the BPIF and further her knowledge of the field at leisure. Of the award, Melanie said, “I feel extremely privileged to be recognised as a recipient of the BPIF Kathy Woodward Award, and would like to thank both my BPIF assessor Dominic Wing and my colleagues at the Multi Packaging Solutions Artwork Services department for their continued support and encouragement.”
To apply for the £1,000 Award, you will need to submit a 500 word proposal on why you should receive the award and how you would spend the money to further your career in the print, packaging or graphic design industries.
The winner will receive a cheque and trophy at a ceremony taking place in London on 4 July 2018.
All applications should be sent directly to Sophie Chater at [email protected] by 5pm on 8 June 2018.
