Judging criteria are output quality; degree of innovation; business effectiveness; and a newly added criterion, overall creativity. Organisers have included the new criterion to spur customer’s thinking on the technical and creative applications of print. They see an increase in demand for flexibility and variance in the print industry such as personalisation and versioning. Also, printouts via various applications, on different types of paper and with specialty colours beyond CMYK.
Independent judges from the print and creative industries will review all entries to determine the winners.
Apart from the application categories, a single winner will receive the ‘Best Innovation’ award. Previously known as ‘Best of the Best’ award, it will go to the entry that surpasses the four judging criteria.

All winners and runners-up will have their creative pieces featured in the Innovation Print Awards Winners’ Booklet. The company will promoted these across its country websites, social media.
