by FESPA | 16/01/2018

Print service providers (PSPs) and sign-makers looking to showcase their best projects in the FESPA Awards 2018 have just under two weeks left to enter.

The FESPA Awards celebrates innovative and exceptional work from PSPs and sign-makers worldwide, recognising the creative potential of the global speciality print community.

Whether PSPs specialise in point of purchase, fine art, special effects, printing on 3D products or non-printed signage, there are 14 categories to be entered directly to showcase their skills and to be in with a chance of winning and therefore gaining global recognition.

Each category is open to four production processes: digital printing only, screen printing only, mixed techniques and non-printed. For information on all 14 Awards categories visit: www.fespaawards.com/categories 

The final deadline for the FESPA Awards is Friday 26 January 2018. The entries will then be shortlisted by the FESPA Awards Judges, all of whom are renowned print industry experts.

The shortlisted entries will be showcased at FESPA Global Print Expo 2018 in Berlin, Germany, from 15 to 18 May 2018, where they will be viewed by the global speciality print community, including potential new business prospects.

Award winners will be announced at the FESPA 2018 Gala Night which will take place on Wednesday 16 May 2018, during FESPA 2018.
