Global Flexo Innovation Awards Now Open for Entries

Miraclon announced that the Global Flexo Innovation Awards – to honor businesses that are pioneering the transformation of the flexo industry – are open for submissions from companies wishing to be recognized for its exciting, creative and innovative commercial packaging projects printed using KODAK FLEXCEL NX Plates.

The awards, which are open to any prepress provider, printer or brand, bring together the whole flexo community, creating opportunities to build new contacts, relationships and partnerships across the print and packaging industry.

Entries will reportedly be judged by an independent panel of nine highly experienced flexo industry experts on four criteria: the degree of creativity in the graphic design of the project, conversion from other print processes to flexo, the efficiency of the company’s workflow and the level of sustainable print in the project.

Entries establishing excellence in two categories will receive a silver award, in three categories a gold award and in all four categories a platinum award, demonstrating to the industry and to the winner’s customers a commitment to the highest level of print production in all aspects.

“The Global Flexo Innovation Awards is different from other competitions. It’s not about one company beating another; it’s about highlighting companies doing great work. Our goal is to demonstrate how the flexo process continues to innovate and grow, becoming more powerful as a tool,” said Christopher Horton, chair of the judging panel.

“During these difficult times, when we at Miraclon believe it’s more important than ever to celebrate the hard work and innovation taking place in our industry, we’ll ensure it’s easy for entrants to take part,” said Grant Blewett, chief commercial officer, Miraclon. “And if your entry is selected by the independent judging panel for an award, you’ll become an ambassador for transformational flexographic print, gain industry-wide recognition for taking packaging print forward and have your story told across the world.”
