About the 2021 Awards

After a challenging 2020, it’s time to celebrate the incredible successes that the flexographic print sector has seen through the year! From the rapid increase in demand for packaging to the development of new packaging innovations in the wake of Covid-19, huge milestones were achieved across our industry.

The prestigious EFIA Print Awards 2021 celebrates the outstanding achievements of the flexographic industry and puts the spotlight on the businesses and individuals that continue to push the category forwards. The award ceremony provides an opportunity to network and celebrate collective and individual successes and the impressive advancements of the sector.

We all need a chance to celebrate after such a tough year so make sure you are in the running for an EFIA Print Award!
