A new search begins for the world’s leading innovators in the label and package printing industry, with a total of five awards available at this year’s Label Industry Global Awards.

The awards this year recognize organizations and individuals who have excelled in the label and package printing sector in 2020 or 2021.

The top honor, awarded to either an individual or team, is the R. Stanton Avery Global Achievement Award, supported by Avery Dennison. In memory of Stan Avery’s pioneering spirit and values, this award recognizes an innovation or idea that has helped transform and progress the label industry across the world.

Introduced at the 2019 Label Industry Global Awards in Brussels, the Rising Star Award, sponsored by the Label Academy, once again recognizes the emerging talent of an individual starting their label and package printing career, with the potential of becoming a future leader. Nominees should have worked in the industry for at least five years and demonstrate a strong potential for appointment at the highest levels of the profession.

The Award for Innovation is based on size; one for companies with over 300 employees and another for those with less than 300 employees. Entries must be for the development of a specific innovation by a supplier or converter company in 2020 or 2021 and can either be for a new business process or technology related.

The Environmental & Sustainability Award acknowledges a new sustainable product or process introduced by a converter or supplier company in the label industry in 2020 or 2021. 

Andy Thomas-Emans, chair of the judges, said:
"It is fantastic to see the label industry once again celebrating the creativity and pursuit of excellence which sets it apart in the wider world of print. Industry manufacturers continue to develop innovative products which help label converters add value to their customers' brands. At the same time label converters' in-house teams continue to push the envelope on what is possible in terms of decorative techniques for branded goods.'

Entry is free and submissions must be received by 13 May 2022. Finalists, along with the winner of the R. Stanton Avery Global Achievement Award, will be announced in early August. All winners will be announced at the awards ceremony on 13 September, the first day of Labelexpo Americas.
