Students can now apply to enter the annual Tom Frecska Student Printing Competition, which acknowledges innovative imaging work from secondary and post-secondary schools.

The competition honors former editor of Screen Printing magazine, Tom Frecska, who passed away in May 2009 after suffering a sudden heart attack at the age of 42.

Sponsored by the Academy of Screen Printing Technology, the competition includes 24 categories and two divisions: secondary and post-secondary schools. Students can enter as individuals or teams; all work must be produced within the 2010-2011 school year.

All submissions will be displayed at the 2011 SGIA Expo. First place winners will be recognized in each category. One entry from each division will be honored with the Best in Show award and receive an ASPT Achievement Award and a $500 graphic art education scholarship.
