FESPA Awards 2023 now open

All applicants entered into new sustainability category

The FESPA Awards 2023 are now open to print service providers (PSPs) and sign-makers looking to highlight their outstanding examples of print.

This year, FESPA has added a new category to zone in on sustainably produced applications. This award will be judged across all categories against environmental considerations, including a reduction in the use of materials, energy and labour throughout production; whether the product can be reused or recycled; if notable attention has been paid to lifecycle analysis; and whether the entry is economically viable.
Graeme Richardson-Locke, FESPA’s Head of Associations and Technical Lead, comments: “As the demand for sustainable production and strong environmental credentials is rising in the industries we represent, printers and sign-makers are having to rethink their production practices, reduce waste and reuse/recycle materials. As a result of this, we are seeing more and more products with a focus on sustainable production come to market. Sustainability has been at the top of the agenda for FESPA for quite some time now and, by introducing the Sustainability Award, we want to highlight the incredible talent of companies who are driving change in this area.”
The FESPA Awards will also welcome entries into the following categories:
Display and POP on Paper and Board
Packaging on Paper and Board
Display and POP on Plastic

Serigraphies and Fine Art
Decals and Printed Labels

The final category is the Young Star Award, which can be entered by those aged 16 to 25 working as a vocational trainee or student in digital or screen printing and design. Entrants can enter this award by submitting work in any of the print related categories. There will not be a cost to enter the Young Star category and the prize for the winner is €1,000.
In addition to the Sustainability Award, there are three further Awards that all entrants are automatically considered for. The People’s Choice Award is voted for by FESPA’s online community across all categories and voting for this award will be open from 13 February 2023. The Best in Show Award and the Judges Award for Innovation are chosen by the FESPA Awards judges.
For printers and sign-makers looking to enter the 2023 Awards, entries must be submitted by Wednesday 25 January 2023. The shortlisted entries will be announced on Monday 13 March and will be displayed at FESPA Global Print Expo 2023, which takes place from 23 to 26 May at Messe Munich, Germany.
