It is also open to the public. "Xerox's support demonstrates its commitment to the graphic arts industry. Our association welcomes Xerox to a prestigious group of top industry leaders who are participating in this event," said Randy Colahan, chairman, Graphic Arts Exhibition Committee and AGC board member. "Xerox is committed to helping its graphic arts customers profit and grow with the New Business of Printing. Hosting this award exhibition gives us an excellent opportunity to interact with and learn from individuals across the graphic arts supply chain - from prepress providers and creatives to printers and publishers. It also allows us to share our knowledge of the power of digital printing with AGC members," said Elaine Wilde, senior vice president, Xerox Worldwide Graphic Arts Business. More than 700 entries were submitted to AGC and judged by a panel of 20 print production professionals and art directors. Entries were judged for their production qualities, design and function. Special categories included digital print on demand, Web site design and large format projects.
