MTWO to sponsor UK Graphic Awards Rising Star

MTWO to sponsor UK Graphic Awards Rising Star
Print industry recruitment specialist, MTWO Search has announced that it is sponsoring the UK Graphic Awards’ Rising Star category for 2022.

The award recognises the achievements of those who have been in the wide-format print industry for less than three years, and is open for nominations from colleagues and managers.

Managing Director of MTWO Search, Matt Hanley is certainly looking forward to the event. He said, “I’ve personally been a supplier to the industry for over 10 years, but late last year I branched out alone and created MTWO Search. The UK Graphic Awards was our first event as a business, and I’m chuffed that this year we are coming back as a sponsor of the Rising Star Award”.

Dan Tyler, founder of the UK Graphics Awards commented: “I’ve known Matt for almost 10 years. He introduced me to the world of wide-format when I joined him as a junior recruiter in the industry, so to be a part of his first year in business and support him in getting his name in front of our brilliant audience is a real honour.”

He added “Matt’s passion for attracting more young blood into the industry is needed now more than ever. I really don’t think there could be a better business to support this particular category.”

The Rising Star award recognises individuals who have been in the industry for three years or less and have shown great potential and a natural flair for someone of their experience level. The category is open to all ages, and nominations are invited from the nominees’ managers and/or colleagues.

Commenting on his decision to sponsor, Matt explained: “The industry has been in need of new blood and fresh talent for years, so for us to sponsor and that recognises these newcomers into the industry, is truly an honour.”

The winner of the Rising Star and 16 other awards will be revealed at the 2022 UK Graphic Awards gala dinner, which will be held on October 5th at the Hilton Deansgate, Manchester.

Last year’s event, which was hailed a great success, marked the first time that the industry was able to get together after the global pandemic and this year’s event promises to be bigger and better. There are more categories, more projects will be celebrated and more companies will sponsor the awards. It will be a night for everyone operating within the large format print sector to celebrate!

Entry is free and open until July 1st. For further information and entry forms for all categories, visit:
