Flint Group – Call for entries to the annual print awards

Flint Group officially opens its 13th annual print awards competition with a call for entries. Winners will be announced during a live event at the Flint Group stand at Labelexpo Europe 2017 on 26 September.

Label converters from around the globe are encouraged to submit printed samples of their choosing for evaluation by a panel of industry judges.  Flint Group has received hundreds of submissions since the first competition in 2005; presenting this award to more than 75 companies globally. In 2016, Flint Group presented awards in several specific categories at Labelexpo Americas – all submissions using inks, coatings, and specialty products that were supplied by Flint Group.

Commenting on the awards, Mr. Guillaume Clement, Vice President Global Narrow Web, says, “Flint Group has a value proposition which includes both equipment and consumables. In 2017 we are eager to expand the awards beyond inks and coatings to include our colleagues in Xeikon and Flexographic Products.”

Entry Guidelines are as follows:

  1. Each entry must be printed using Flint Group materials and/or equipment
  2. Entries can be a commercial label, or a promotional label
  3. Entries can be sent in roll or sheet form with no less than 20 of each label – converters should specify if labels cannot be displayed on the Flint Group stand.
  4. Entries should be received no later than August 31, 2017
  5. Entries should be submitted directly to Flint Group. Contact your local representative for specific contacts.
