About Us

What are the UK Graphic Awards?

The UK Graphic Awards are an opportunity for the industry to come together to celebrate and recognise the talent and hard work that goes into producing the UK’s most exceptional visual projects and the impact these have on the wider commercial and social community. 

The theme of the awards is ‘Be Bold’ and the event will showcase the best in creativity and impact of projects across a number of industries.


Why now?

Put simply, we believe that a celebration of all that is great in the UK graphics industry is long overdue!

Through our fresh approach, combining a day of thought provoking presentations and group discussions with an evening of recognition and celebration, we will bring together the best and brightest of our industry and give every one of our attendees the ideas and inspiration they’re looking for to allow their business to Thrive in the years ahead.


Who are the organisers?

The 2021 awards are jointly presented by Vism, a leading provider of cloud-based project management software for the wide format print industry, and FESPA UK, the prominent association representing the printers and suppliers that make up the UK graphics industry.

Important to note is that entry is open to all producers of wide format print in the UK, not only those who are members of FESPA UK.

Association membership will have absolutely no bearing on being shortlisted for, or winning an award – not now, not ever.

“We just had to get involved with this as soon as we heard about its inception… the need for our industry to have a new and fresh awards made it a must-do to sponsor. The brilliant idea to also incorporate a conference ultimately gave it a point of difference and value for money.”

“I believe this event will be a big hit with the industry and offer a new and fresh model.”
