Entries are open for the 2020 AWA International Sleeve Label Awards – a competition that for the last five years, has annually documented the groundbreaking achievements that sleeve labeling has brought to today’s packaging industry.
Recognizing quality at all production levels
Entries will be accepted from printers/converters and brand owners/end users which demonstrate quality and originality in the design, production, and end-use of all types of label sleeves. 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.
Sleeve label industry specialists
Competition sponsors AWA Alexander Watson Associates, specialist market researchers and consultants to the broad packaging and converting industries, have focussed strongly on sleeve label market developments, and host the leading annual sleeve labeling conference, which alternates between Europe and the USA. In its fourteenth year, the AWA International Sleeve Label Conference and Exhibition 2020 will be held in Cincinnati, USA, 29 April – 1 May 2020, during which winners in the AWA International Sleeve Label Awards will be presented with their trophies at a special ceremony on the evening of 30 April 2020.
