The European Flexographic Industry Association (EFIA) has announced the EFIA Print Awards competition for 2021 is now open to entries from across the flexographic printing industry.

After a challenging year, which saw many businesses having to respond to rapid increases in demand for packaging and develop exciting new innovations in the wake of Covid-19, the prestigious EFIA Print Awards provide the ideal opportunity to celebrate these incredible achievements.

A highlight of the industry calendar, the EFIA Print Awards play host to the brightest and best talents from across the sector, showcasing the quality, efficiency, innovation, sustainability and technical developments that have become the hallmark of the industry.

Following last year's successful online event, EFIA is hopeful that the 2021 gala dinner will be an opportunity for the industry to celebrate in person. This year's EFIA Print Awards Gala Dinner will take place on November 4, 2021, at the National Railway Museum in York. The Association is closely monitoring the ongoing pandemic, and further details will be announced in the coming months.

Last year, the awards ceremony was streamed live where numerous companies picked up gold awards, including FFP Packaging Solutions, Roberts Mart, Interflex Group, Encore Group, Reflex Group, Saica, Coveris, DS Smith Packaging and East Riding Sacks. Leading the winners was Smurfit Kappa, taking home a haul of 17 accolades. Best in Show was awarded to FFP Packaging Solutions for its Juicy Meat Company Large Beef Easy Cook Pouch which scooped gold in the Reverse Print Wide category.

Entries for the awards are now open, and the submission deadline is July 31, 2021. For more information on the benefits of EFIA membership or to enter the awards, please visit www.efia.uk.com or contact EFIA on admin@efia.uk.com.
