Tuesday, June 04, 2019

Kearney, Mo. – The In-Plant Printing and Mailing Association (IPMA) is thrilled to announce the In-Print® 2019 Best of Show Winners. The contest, co-sponsored by IPMA and In-plant Impressions, culminated in a gala evening of award presentations at IPMA’s 2019 Annual Conference in Louisville, Kentucky, last night.

Nearly 400 entries were received for the In-Print Awards with 73 pieces from 33 in-plants chosen to receive Gold, Silver, and Bronze awards. Best of Show winners were selected from those receiving Gold in two categories: Offset and Non-Offset. Bob Neubauer, editor of In-plant Impressions explains, “The Best of Show winner is selected out of all the Gold winners because it demonstrates the most outstanding quality, workmanship and level of difficulty of all entries in the contest.”

The Best of Show, Offset was presented to the Church of Scientology International for their Castle Kyalami Catalog.

The Best of Show, Non-Offset was presented to The World Bank Group for their Special Project Faces of Resilience Photobook and Posters.

Christopher Donlon, Kohler Company and 2019 IPMA Awards Chairperson said, “I accepted the challenge of being the Awards Chairperson for two reasons, one, I wanted to give back to the organization that has given me so much, and two, I wanted to see what my peers were submitting to the contest. I have learned a great deal over the years and have been able to bring it all right back to my parent organization, and my winning entries are proof of it.

Each year the judging gets harder and harder; this year was no exception. Our peers are stepping up their games because they want to win, and when you have a table full of winners, the task is that much more difficult.”
