FESPA Awards 2019 judges share insight into what they are looking for this year part 3

FESPA has received fantastic Award entries from our valued print community. We speak to our esteemed judges, who have given us an insight into what they are looking for in your entries. In part 3, FESPA speaks to Peter Kiddell.

In part three of our five-part series we speak to another of our esteemed judges, Peter Kiddell. Peter has 35 years’ experience in the wide format and specialist printing industry as both a printer and educator.

What made you want to be on the judging panel of the 2019 Awards? 

“It is an honour to be asked to return to the judging panel. With more than 35 years in the industry I have seen a continued growth in the importance of the awards and their effectiveness in developing standards in the industry. Winners gain real benefits for their business when they promote their success in the highly prestigious FESPA Awards.”
 

What are you looking for in an entry?

 “Two words: innovation and difference.”
 

What is your favourite category to judge?

“I have two; Limited edition screen print and Industrial print, where the aesthetic and functional qualities of print are used by industry as a precision production process.”


Where do you see the future of print going?

“Onwards and upwards both in industrial applications and where colour and design enhance our environment.”
 

What is the biggest challenge that you feel entrants have?

“Surprising the judges and then reinforcing their delight with the precision of their creation.”
We look forward to welcoming Peter to FESPA’s Head Office to judge the Awards entries in February.
