The Sunset Print Award is being presented at print competitions across the U.S. Though 12 competitions are already completed, there are still about a dozen remaining that you can enter for a chance to win a Sunset Print Award.
Winners of the Sunset Print Award at each competition receive a crystal trophy, a lapel pin, and a $250 gift certificate for Sunset-branded inkjet media. Sunset Print Award winners at each competition receive an additional prize, an iPad Mini, if the winning image is printed on Sunset inkjet media. Entries do not need to be printed on Sunset media to qualify, but must be inkjet-printed.
Each winner in the regional and local competitions is then automatically entered to win the Grand Prize in the national Sunset Print Award competition. The Grand Prize winner receives airfare for two to Sarasota, Fla., with lodging at Lido Beach resort for three days and two nights, a $500 Visa gift card and national recognition. Second and third place winners receive a $500 and $300 Visa gift card respectively.
