FPLMA award entries closing Friday

The Flexible Packaging & Label Manufacturers Association (FPLMA) awards are closing entries on Friday, with the judging set to be completed July 17.


The competition is open to all Australian packaging and label converters, while the printed material must be manufactured in Australia.


Having run its awards for multiple years, the FPLMA says packaging print quality has been on the up, with buyers demanding more from their printers, pushing them to break boundaries, with suppliers also stepping up.


Tony Dalleore, secretary, FPLMA, explains, “The judges are looking for innovation in the printing process, while maintaining a high level of excellence in print quality.


“The requirements of the major buying groups continue to increase and evolve, as demand continues to push the boundaries, and printers to deliver high-quality print.


“Buyers continue to put heavy demand onto printers to lift quality. The printers then push the boundaries from their suppliers to deliver outstanding quality.


“Even as presses have become faster, suppliers to the industry have become diversified, and in turn consumables on the presses have evolved in order to meet the ongoing requirements of the buyers.”


The FPLMA awards have evolved over the years, opening them up to all printers and processes.


Dalleore says, “Certain award categories have been consolidated, but the combined entry form has been designed to cover a wide range of different print processes to encourage printers to enter their awards.”
