Printweek Quiz Of The Year

Yes, it has been another long year and, yes, in an effort to negotiate the tricky trading conditions you have probably used your brain quite enough already, but before you all toddle off for a few Christmas drinks, there is the small matter of the PrintWeek Christmas Quiz to contend with. Of course, everyone pretends not to be bothered about the score they attain in this traditional test of the grey matter, but deep down inside we all know it matters. So pick up your pencils and get going, and then go online and see how you compare with everyone else. Remember, bragging rights are for life, not just for Christmas.
