“Our judges have a total of 80 years of print production experience and are invited across the country to other PIA associations to judge so they have seen all levels of print,” said Christine Hagopian, PINE’s Director of Programs. “Even though the number of entries was not as large as some of the other associations they felt the quality of PINE members’ entries took a back seat to no one. Our members should be very proud of that.”
