Monday, June 11, 2012
Press release from the issuing company
FINAT, the worldwide association representing the interests of the self-adhesive labelling industry, announced the winners of its 32nd label awards competition at the award ceremony of its annual congress in Athens. This year proved to be a strong year. The competition attracted 325 entries or the third highest number ever. Entries are coming from 52 companies, including new countries from Latin-America, namely Brazil and Peru. The judging panel of this year's label competition included
Murat Sipahioglu (Avery Dennison, Turkey), Steve Wood (UK), an expert in screen printing and other printing processes, Gregory Kokkoris (Dot Repro, Greece), Lianne van den Berg (Cartils, The Netherlands) and chairman of the judging panel Tony White (UK).
Refining categories: Wine
FINAT has been rewarded with more than 40 entries in this new 'Wine' category resulting in a 'Best in Show' award and 13 Highly Commended certificates. FINAT believes that this will become an even more popular category in future years. The same can be said of the cosmetic category where all the cosmetic labels were grouped under one class. This was even more of a success with more over 70 entries in this category.
Best in Show winner: a real credit to the wine and label industry
"This is an outstanding label on many levels," commented Tony White. "We were extremely impressed not only by the technical excellence of the label, but also by its artistic appearance. "The design is very authoritative and confident. This label would sell the wine purely on the quality of the label. Its dramatic look grabs the consumer's attention. Using the screen and offset litho processes along with delicate and very accurate foiling with the additional bonus of embossing the whole label exudes quality.
