“Girls Who Print Day and International Print Day are two opportunities for the industry to celebrate what we do, and celebrate the amazing women of print and their contributions, together. While we still face challenges in meeting in person, events like these remind us that we are all part of the bigger picture, and that there is much to be proud of,” Corn said.
Print Media Centr has also added a Project Peacock celebration to the #IPD21 schedule. International Print Day attendees are invited to join the online event for free on October 19, starting at 6 pm ET (October 20 at 9am AEST).
