Entries are now being accepted for the 2020 AWA International Sleeve Label Awards for recognizing the achievements in the sleeve labeling industry. Entries will be accepted from printers, converters, brand owners and end users that demonstrate quality and originality in design, production and end-use of all types of sleeve label.
Judged by an international panel of industry experts, the AWA International Sleeve Label Awards feature four main categories – heat shrink TD sleeve labels; roll-fed MD shrink sleeves; stretch sleeves; and a special category recognizing a notable environmental/sustainability contribution. At their discretion, the judges may also award a ‘best in show’ trophy.
