The 28th edition of the Fespa Awards is now open to those wanting to highlight outstanding examples of print.

There are 14 categories including special effects on T-shirts, garments and other textiles; printed garments; and roll-to-roll printed textiles. Within each print category, there are four sub-categories which applicants can enter: digital printing, screen printing, mixed techniques and non-printed.

In addition to the 14 categories, entrants will automatically be entered for two further awards: The People’s Choice Award, which is selected by Fespa’s online community from all entries, and the Best in Show Award, decided by the Fespa Awards judges.

There is also the Young Star Award, for those aged 16 to 25 and working as a junior employee, trainee or student in any print-related discipline.

Entries to the 2019 awards will close on 25 January 2019 and winners will be announced at the 2019 Gala Dinner that will take place on Wednesday 15 May in Munich.

Entries cost €50 per entry for members, €100 per entry for non-members and €15 for trainees and students.
