This past weekend The Printing Industry of the Carolinas held their annual awards banquet at the Embassy Suites in Concord, North Carolina. Since 1966, the PICA Awards have been the premier symbol of excellence for the graphics industry in the Carolinas.
Before the awards banquet began there was a formal reception where all attendees were able to view the entries and special judges’ awards. The major sponsorship awards were displayed on a large table with the sponsors unannounced. Wentworth received multiple accolades at this year’s banquet. 2- Sponsored awards, 5- Best of Category, 5- Special Judges Award, and 3- Award of Excellence.
Our entry “P2 book – Sheetfed Catalog” won the Mac Papers Best of Printing Award- Category D (50+ employees). We received a gorgeous metal palmetto tree award which was accepted by Jason and his speech, “I’ll make this brief… thank you.” “Harbor Kits” took home the PICA Favorite Job of the Year award. Donna accepted the glass statue and expressed her gratitude to the amazing craftsmanship of the WPC employees.
After the awards were announced, The Black and Blue Band came out and played oldies and Motown favorites. Attendees were encouraged to dance and socialize with the different companies throughout the room. The Wentworth crew celebrated the award wins in good company.
