The awards are open for all those producing labels and packaging using inkjet or toner-based technologies. Entries can be fully digital, printed digitally and converted using conventional technologies or printed using analogue technologies (flexo, offset, etc) and then converted and finished digitally. The range of printed items able to be entered spans the entire gamut of the packaging industry, from labels, shrink sleeves and flexible packaging, to folding cartons and corrugated boxes, via cans, bottles and even foodstuffs.

‘These awards are a true celebration of the great and the good using digital to print and convert,’ commented David Pittman, Digital Labels & Packaging editor. ‘As can be seen from the variety of categories open for entries and the type of work/jobs we are calling for, the Digital Labels & Packaging Awards 2023 are open to all and all are invited to get their entries into us, then join us in London on June 29, 2023 at The Kia Oval for the awards ceremony.’
