DMI students made India proud by winning international awards year after year

Ever since its inception in 2006, my institute, DMI is continuing its saga of winning awards in national and international students’ competitions. This year my institute has set a world record by clinching two hatricks in two major international awards competitions and made me and my country proud.

As many of  you would recollect, by winning Silver at FESPA 2010 Munich, DMI became the first screen printing institute in the world to win in FESPA’s Youth competitions for three years’ in succession.

And in this ASPT students’ competition 2010, my students sealed yet another hatricks by cornering awards for 4 consecutive years.

This year DMI won 3 Gold Awards, 3 Honorable Mention and 1 Best of Show Honor in ASPT’s Tom Frecska Student Printing Competition 2010. This means out of its 8 entries, it cornered 7 awards.

I am very proud of all my students who really worked hard with perfection and won 7 international awards for DMI.

Here, I would like to specially mention two names “Shailesh Yeole” and “Firoz Chippa”, who played a leading role in the entire awards entry process. Both of them really hard with passion and dedication and the awards are the reflection of their efforts. Their entry not only won GOLD but was also judged as “BEST OF SHOW” in this competition.

I was told that there were 61 entries from six institutes in the Post Secondary section out of which 17 entries were bestowed with awards. I was also informed that DMI was the only entity from India in this section which had submitted 8 samples out of which 7 were bestowed with awards.

The ASPT students’ competition though relatively new, the quality from the participants are improving year after year as noted by the observers. There has been also a growing interest among the visitors to see the students’ award gallery. But visitors usually tend to feel that students are not competing in the same manner as professional printers.  But this year their belief was wrong.

Many of the visitors could not really believe the standard of quality of entries submitted by DMI students this year, especially the DMI’s winning samples on display.

My friend, Mike Young, a leading consultant (Imagetek Consulting International), USA, had sent me an email about this good news and here are his words.

“Dear Bhargav,

“Yeole Shilesh did a great job. He won gold for the Butterfly Bag, an honorary mention for the A4 Catalog and gold for the FESPA Munich River which also took deservedly the “Best In Show” Award.

Rishi/Sunil won honorary for the Chocolate Box, as did Albert Baby Chand for the Guitar print.  However, Rishi won gold for his Teddy Bear entry.

This year, the competition was tough from several really good entries from US students – effectively setting up a challenged to the Indian ‘block’.

Please give your students a resounding thanks and appreciation in all their efforts and endeavors and not forgetting their instructor of course.

    I am very eager to see live the works at DMI. DMI is doing a great job. I am from Kolkata. We do not have institute like DMI here. If you know then upgrade me. I would like to know the variety of applications of screen printing. Also, my question is that can screen printing unit be viable in today’s competitive market?

    Dear Mr Mistry, I have done a one day workshop on screen printing on fabric. I have fallen in love with this art. I am keen on taking it forward but I do not have I depth knowledge on the following topics: Binder pigment ratio, Solvents, Selection of right mesh for printing on various fabrics etc. Kindly let me know if there is a short course in your institute or is there a information cell that can help novices like us.
