Entry to the FESPA 2007 Premier Awards Competition, which recognises excellence in screen printing and wide-format digital imaging, is now open. All printers who are members of national screen printing associations affiliated to FESPA (the SGIAA) or are FESPA Individual Members can enter, with some industrial categories also being open to non-members.

Those wishing to enter the competition can do so by going to www.fespa2007.com and completing the Competition Registration Form before 5th May 2007.  Competition entries must be submitted to FESPA by 25th May 2007.  All work that has been produced ‘in normal production’ during the period from June 2005 and March 2007 is eligible for entry.

The aim of the Awards is for screen and digital printers to gain exposure within the industry.  Nigel Steffens, General Secretary of FESPA, comments: “The Awards offer printers a high profile chance to showcase their work to an international audience of thousands.  We at FESPA feel that the high standard of work that is being achieved by printers across our Associations should be celebrated. We hope that printers seize the opportunity to exhibit their work and gain recognition for their achievements.”

The number of categories has risen this year to 22, with the inclusion of a new digital category for Pure Textile.  Two other categories have been amended to include industrial applications and signage.  Full details of categories and guidelines are also available from the website.  Companies can enter any number of categories within the competition, though only two entries can be accepted per category.

Entries will be assessed by teams of judges chosen from an international panel on 3rd and 4th June, just before FESPA 2007 (5th-9th June, Berlin). All of the entries will be displayed at the exhibition in the Awards Pavilion, and can be viewed by all visitors to the show.  The winners will be notified of their achievement before 5th June and are invited to attend the FESPA 2007 Awards Winners Party, held on 7th June in the Messe Berlin Halls.
