SWUG recognises the important role that apprentices play in the industry with a special award made at the conference to the Apprentice of the Year.

Potential candidates are encouraged by their site managers to enter the competition. All participants attend the SWUG conference with the successful candidate undertaking a tour of print-related sites on the east coast.

The SWUG Apprentice of the Year is open to all indentured apprentices from all trades who are employed in the newspaper printing industry within Australia including both single and double width presses.

Nominations must be in writing and include supporting documentation of training, achievements and experience. All entries must be authorised and signed by the applicant’s employer or senior manager.
