Competition details and entries can be submitted on the FESPA website and the categories include: Instore; Outdoor; Interior; Functional decoration; Garment; Integrated; Sustainable; Special effect; Fine art; and Vehicle decoration.
This is the first year that the FESPA Awards takes the form of an annual competition, open to any service provider, based anywhere in the world.
The final award is the President's Innovation Award, which will be given to the entry which all judges agree to offer the most outstanding example of innovation across all categories.
Shortlisted entries to the FESPA Awards 2014 will be showcased on the FESPA website from 20th March 2014 onwards, from which time the print community will be invited to vote online for the People's Choice award.
All shortlisted entries will also be exhibited at Messe Munich during the May 2014 FESPA Digital exhibition, and the winners will be recognised at an Awards ceremony as part of the exhibition Gala Night.
A gallery of the winning and highly commended work will then continue on a year-long global tour, to be showcased at FESPA exhibitions in Africa, Mexico, Turkey, Brazil and Asia, attracting an international audience of printers and print buyers, including brand owners, agencies, and creative and interior designers.
FESPA Head of Events, Duncan MacOwan comments: "Already the New Year is well underway and 28 February – the closing date for the competition – is just around the corner. That's why we want to remind our global community to submit their entries, so that we can continue to share and showcase the extraordinary capabilities of print."
MacOwan emphasises: "We want to encourage as wide a range of entries as possible, from all sectors of the world of wide format print. It's time for printers to take action. This is an unmissable opportunity to bring their work to the attention of a worldwide audience, earn the respect of industry peers and colleagues, and pave the way to new business growth opportunities."
