The Printing Charity, the BPIF and Unite have once again joined forces for this year's Print Futures Awards, which honours the brightest lights in print and supports them with funding for additonal training.

The scheme offers £1,500 to 16-30 year-olds who are already working or plan to work in the UK print, publishing and graphic arts industries. The bursaries are awarded to individuals looking to undertake full- or part-time courses or training to further their print careers.

"Applications are particularly welcome from people already working in the UK print industry, who are on low incomes and want to undertake short courses or training sessions to develop their skills and improve their earning capacity," said Unite national officer Steve Sibbald.

Entries close on 31 May and the 2012 winners will be unveiled on 11 July at an event to be held at the House of Lords.
