The National Association for Printing Leadership (NAPL) announces a call for entries for the 14th annual NAQP Print Excellence Awards, formerly known as the PrintImage Excellence Awards. The competition recognizes quick and small commercial printers who have mastered the art of graphic communications.
Quick and small commercial printers are invited to compete in 11 categories, including Offset Four-Color (4-C Press), In-House Design, Self-Promotion, and Digital Copier and Press (Ink or Toner-Based).
Each year, hundreds of entries are submitted for the judges to review with only the best-of-the-best selected. Winners in each category will be presented with their awards at the 2012 NAQP Owners Conference, October 4-6, in Chicago. Winning companies will also be featured in NAPL’s [P]Review magazine and in Quick Printing magazine, be given a “Winner” icon for use on their website and marketing materials, and receive mention in a press release submitted industry-wide to all media.
“The Print Excellence Awards feature work from some of the most talented quick and small commercial printers from around the world. We’re happy to provide them with an opportunity to showcase their talents,” said Mitch Evans, Managing Director of NAQP and NAPL Senior Consultant. “The use of new equipment and techniques demonstrate how technology is changing the face of the printing landscape.”
The 2012 Print Excellence Awards will be judged by a panel of industry experts. Submission deadline is August 27, 2012. Winners will be notified in September. For more information about Print Excellence Awards submission guidelines, deadlines, categories, and more, visit http://www.napl.org/PEA.
