About 250 technologies have received InterTech Awards since the award was introduced in 1978.

Recipients are chosen by an independent panel of judges made up of experienced print professionals with expertise in a variety of areas.

Additionally, recipients will receive an InterTech Lucite Star--a recognised and coveted icon--which can be used to help promote their work.
