BOHEMIA, NY – August 28, 2014 – Join the “best and the brightest” by entering the flexographic printing industry’s largest and most prestigious awards competition, the Excellence in Flexography Awards, sponsored by Flexographic Technical Association (FTA). This time-honored awards program, first established in 1960, pays tribute to the superior printing achievements by an industry continuously demonstrating gains in quality, consistency and process control.

Flexographic printers/converters, print buyers, suppliers, designers and students from around the world are invited to test their level of quality, achievement and technical prowess in the field of flexographic printing. Entries are broken down into eight categories: wide web, mid web, narrow web, combined corrugated, preprinted linerboard, envelope, self-promotion and student.

“We’re looking forward to another exciting awards competition,” commented FTA Awards Committee Chair, Paul Lancelle. “And, based on the feedback the committee received from our printer members, we’re pleased to report that the entry forms have been considerably simplified, making it easier than ever to get entries submitted.”

All entries must have been printed between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2014. Gold, Silver, Bronze and Best of Show award winners in each category will be announced at the gala Awards Banquet during the Association’s 2015 Annual Forum in Nashville, TN on Sunday, May 3 and will also be prominently featured in FLEXO Magazine’s Annual Awards issue.
