NEW YORK--Feb. 10, 2004-- Nearly 200 award-winning projects created by leading graphic arts professionals from the New York/New Jersey metro area will be showcased at the Association of Graphic Communications 62nd Annual Graphic Arts Awards Exhibition in April at Xerox Corporation's Knowledge Sharing Centre in New York City.
As host of the exhibition for the third consecutive year, Xerox will welcome nearly 500 AGC members and guests -- including printers, advertisers, graphic designers, corporate communication professionals, educators and students -- to view the industry's most creative graphic design projects and learn more about digital printing.
"Xerox's support as facility host of this event adds to the atmosphere of excellence and innovation marked by these awards and shows the company's continued commitment to the graphic arts community," said Diane Romano, chairman, Association of Graphic Communications.
The 175 award-winning entries are segmented into 25 graphic arts categories, including annual reports, brochures, advertising, Web sites, book covers and digital print-on-demand pieces. Over 600 entries were submitted to AGC and judged by a panel of 23 print production professionals and art directors.
"Xerox welcomes the talent and originality of these award winners," said David Tashji, general manager of new business development, Xerox Worldwide Graphic Arts Industry Business. "We encourage these creative professionals to explore the new business opportunities that are available to them through digital printing."
Along with the awards presentations and various receptions, the two-day open viewing of the exhibition allows attendees to see demonstrations of the Xerox DocuColor 6060 Digital Color Press, recognized for its image quality and ease of operation, and the DocuColor iGen3(TM) Digital Production Press, which has revolutionized digital color printing with its image quality, speed and reliability.
