The “Print Innovation Awards” competition honours the most innovative print products and services worldwide. The competition is open to newspaper and magazine publishers as well as advertisers or advertising agencies.

Because innovation in the publishing industry is not confined to digital, the World Printers Forum launched the Print Innovation Awards last year to reward excellence in print innovation.

For its second edition, 61 projects from 23 countries participated in the competition. The jury, composed of World Printers Forum Board members, evaluated the entries and awarded Gold, Silver and Bronze prizes in seven categories.

Judges score each entry based on the outlined criteria: innovation, creativity, excellence, customer/consumer relevancy and value. Gold, Silver and Bronze winners will be honoured on stage at the Berlin Publishing Night of IFRA World Publishing Expo 2019 in Berlin, 8 October 2019.
