L9: Best of the best

WORLD.To celebrate the 21st year of the »World Label Awards«, the L9 group of label associations elected to inaugurate a set of highly distinguished awards to recognise excellence in printing on a worldwide basis. These awards are called the »Best of the Best«.

The awards were selected within five categories: flexographic printing, offset printing, combination printing, letterpress printing, and digital printing. Award recipients were selected from the winners of the »World Label Awards« competition held each year before Labelexpo either in Chicago/USA or in Brussels/B. The five awards were presented by Kurt Walk er, President of Finat, and Ant hony »Tony« White, Chairman of the »World Label Awards« judging panel, during the »Label Industry Global Awards« event held in Brussels/B in September (first evening of Labelexpo Europe).

»This is the first year that we have organised this extension to the ›World Label Awards‹«, commented Tony White. »We are delighted with the quality of the winning labels. We have already completed the judging for this year’s awards which will be announced in September 2014. This extra platform will give the international label industry a boost and will encourage converters to aspire to even higher quality levels in the years to come.«

  • Combination Printing: Rapid Labels/ New Zealand for »The Colour Pinot Noir 2009«
