Sneha Pamneja

Graphic designer Sneha Pamneja was awarded this year’s Oxford Bookstore Book Cover Prize at the Jaipur Literature Festival for designing the cover of Tiffin 500 Authentic Recipes Celebrating India’s Regional Cuisine.

Pamneja received a trophy and a cash prize of Rs 1 lakh on 24 January 2020 by the jury comprising Shashi Tharoor, Namita Gokhale, and Shobhaa De.

The book is written by Sonal Ved and published by Roli books. “The Oxford Bookstore Book Cover Prize is dedicated to understanding, appreciating and showcasing the aesthetics of visual values and design in publishing. It has been a privilege to be associated with this important award and to have observed it grow from strength to strength.

“The winning cover this year, Tiffin, designed by Sneha Pamneja communicates the theme and essence of the book with immediacy and charm,” Gokhale said.

In addition to the winning book cover, three more designers were given special jury awards recognizing their contribution in designing outstanding book covers. These included designers Samya Arif and Amit Malhotra for Hijabistan (HarperCollins), Saurav Das for Hicky’s Bengal Gazette (Westland), and Gaurav Saini for Line on Fire: Ceasefire violations and India-Pakistan escalation dynamics (Oxford University Press)

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
