Submissions came from printers representing every major printing community worldwide. A distinguished panel of judges rated projects for design quality, production complexity, and overall appearance. The 2018 submissions set a new standard for outstanding applications and covered a who’s who gamut of global brands, corporate leaders, notable magazines and financial institutions. The winning awards can be viewed online at Scodix Awards.
‘Our users’ immense creativity, coupled with the increasing sophistication of our digital enhancement tools has resulted in new standards of excellence, and 2018 was no exception,’ noted CEO Adina Shorr. ‘The annual awards showcase the active wizardry happening daily in clients’ production departments worldwide. And, with nearly 120 carefully prepared and packaged entries this year, it’s evident our awards have captured a growing global appeal. We’re excited to recognise and honour those that are setting the bar for digital enhancement expectations that much higher.’
This year’s applicants displayed work that represented just about every segment of the market, including direct mail, product packaging, fine arts, and commercial printing. This contest is crafted to identify the most creative work produced by Scodix customers on a global scale, using Scodix Digital Print Enhancement technology.
