Nominations announced for newsawards 2015 - More than 20 international entries for UPM premier award

Innovation is in the heart of UPM and a coherent part of our Biofore vision. The commitment to innovation is demonstrated in our long cooperation with the UK based newsawards and its international 'Printed Innovation of the Year' category.
 

First introduced in 2013, the UPM's premier award has rapidly become one of the most sought after categories to win. Recognising that innovation is key to the continuing
success of the printed newspaper, the category has attracted fantastic entries with wide international coverage.

This year there were more than 20 entries in the 'Printed innovation of the Year' category. After thorough consideration the entries in 'Printed innovation of the year' as well as 18 other categories were scrutinised by more than 20 judges with specialist knowledge of all aspects of the industry.

Judges were looking for entries that demonstrate the most innovative, creative or commercial implementation of print for newspapers while also demonstrating commercial benefits to printers and/or publishers.

The nominees of the 'Printed Innovation of the Year' category are:

Guardian Print Centre - Posters
Newbury Weekly News – Augmented Reality 3D
Rheinische Post - Poster
Sächsische Zeitung – 3D
The Daily Telegraph – Double Panoramic Creative
The Sunday Times – Super Panoramic Poster

Gary Cullum
, director of newsawards, says: “This year the standard of entry has been exceptional and we are now beginning to see clear evidence of how the industry is facing up to achieving success in these evolving and challenging times. It’s not simply a question of print versus digital, it’s about developing creative, commercial and innovative solutions designed to make the two work together to succeed into the future.”

All the winners will be announced at a gala dinner on Wednesday 29 April at the Lancaster London.
