Nearly 500 entries were judged. Scores have been tallied. Results are being compiled. The 2012 Flexographic Technical Association Excellence in Flexography Awards competition is wrapping up. Medalists have been identified. They number 131. Nine print pieces were deemed “Best of Show” and represent the boldest and brightest packaging flexo had to offer in 2011. Both their degree of difficulty and level of execution were described as “superb.”
Today, the 131 winners—36 gold medalists, 37 silver medalists, 46 bronze medalists, three self-promotion awardees plus the nine best of show honorees—await the unveiling of their prizes. Announcement is set for Sunday, March 18 in San Antonio TX, where FTA will stage its 54th Annual Forum and 30th consecutive INFO*FLEX Exhibition. Plan to be there.
