Enter the annual competition that recognizes outstanding contributions to sleeve labeling
Entries are now being accepted for the 2021 AWA International Sleeve Label Awards – the competition which, for the last six years, has annually documented the ground-breaking achievements that sleeve labeling has brought to today’s packaging industry.
Recognizing quality at all production levels
Entries will be accepted from printers/converters and brand owners/end users which demonstrate quality and originality in the design, production, and end-use of all types of sleeve labels. Judged by an international panel of industry experts, the AWA International Sleeve Label Awards feature four main categories – heat shrink TD sleeve labels; roll-fed MD shrink sleeves; stretch sleeves, and a special category recognizing a notable environmental/sustainability contribution. At their discretion, the judges may also award a ‘best in show’ trophy.

Competition sponsors AWA Alexander Watson Associates, specialist market researchers, and consultants to the broad packaging and converting industries, have focused strongly on sleeve label market developments, and host the leading annual sleeve labeling conference, which alternates between Europe and the USA.
