GPA announces that they are currently accepting entries for their 2013 Print and Design Contest until October 1, 2013. This year marks eighth year of the contest, continuing a tradition that recognizes excellence and creativity in printing. Each year the competition grows bigger and better, yielding new and innovative examples of the opportunities available with GPA substrates.
For a printed piece to be eligible, it must be from an actual job or promotion that was printed by a GPA customer on a qualified GPA substrate within the past year. There is no entry fee, and participants are encouraged to submit as many entries as they like.
Entries are accepted under six different categories:
- Ultra Bak® Plus & Ultra Bak® Classic Pressure Sensitive Papers
- Ultra Film® Non-Adhesive Films
- Ultra Film® Pressure Sensitive Films
- Ultra Digital® Papers
- Ultra Digital® Pressure Sensitive Papers
- Ultra Digital® Synthetic Substrates
A panel of industry experts will judge each entry on uniqueness of design, application use, quality of printing, and complexity of production. From each of the six categories, a Best of Category winner is selected, and then from those six, one entry is chosen as the Best of Show. Winners receive a framed copy of the winning piece, a monetary prize, and industry recognition. This year’s winners will be announced in November 2013.
