Hot on the heels of the successful launch of Roland's Creative awards, HP has now announced a new worldwide competition - The HP Print Excellence Awards. A call for entries has been made and these awards will honour graphic arts printing produced on HP Designjet, Indigo, Inkjet Web Press and Scitex systems.
An international panel of print experts will select winners in 16 categories of commercial print, wide-format graphics and label and packaging applications. In addition to evaluating print quality, the HP Print Excellence Awards also will recognise innovative examples of environmentally responsible printing.
The HP Print Excellence Awards are free to enter. HP graphic arts customers can download entry details and forms at http://www.hp.com/go/printexcellenceawards. Entries are due by March 15, 2012. Winners will be announced at an invitation-only gala event held during drupa 2012 next May in Düsseldorf, Germany. Select entries will be on display at HP’s stand at drupa, in hall 4.
The competition unifies several existing regional and worldwide HP print quality awards into a single, comprehensive programme.
“The HP Print Excellence Awards will show how customers fully express their ingenuity, creativity and skill using HP solutions,” said Christopher Morgan, senior vice president, Graphics Solutions Business, HP. “We look forward to seeing how our customers are advancing the analog to digital transformation and achieving new levels of color quality and innovation.”
