BROOKFIELD, WI | The ninth Label Industry Global Awards is now taking nominations and entries. The competition, which will be held at Labelexpo Americas, scheduled for September 11–13 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center outside of Chicago, is open to all members of the label industry including converters, printers, and suppliers.
There are four categories.
• The R. Stanton Avery Lifetime Achievement Award, sponsored by Avery Dennison, recognizes the values and vision of Stan Avery and his pioneering efforts. Nominees must have worked in the label industry for a minimum of 25 years and made a key contribution to the promotion and growth of the sector.
• The Continuous Innovation Award will honor a long-established supplier or converter that has been instrumental in pioneering the science and technology behind label manufacturing. Entrants must have been operating within the sector for ten years or more and will need to demonstrate that they have developed markets/products for the benefit of the whole industry. The winner will also be singled out for listening to and acting on their customers’ needs and overall business integrity.
• The New Innovation Award is for a specific innovation (technological or business practice) introduced during 2011. Entries will be judged on their degree of innovation, environmental efficiency, and sustainability along with the practical and economic impact on service delivery.
• Presented every two years, the Converter Award for Sustainability/Environmental Responsibility, sponsored by Flint Group, is for a specific sustainable policy or innovation introduced in the last 12 months. The judging panel will look for the most sustainable and environmentally acceptable working practices made by converters in their purchasing, operational, and manufacturing processes and that can demonstrate key materials, production, performance, or consumer benefits.
