    Entries open until 15 March: Inkspiration

Entries are open for another month in the prestigious Asia Pacific and Japan HP Inkspiration Awards 2021, with two new categories covering COVID-19 print, with the awards open to all HP Indigo users.

Now in its 14th year, this event, founded by HP Graphics Solutions Business, puts the spotlight on outstanding digital print innovators across Asia Pacific and Japan. HP Indigo ANZ supplier Currie Group says it, "encourages all our HP Indigo customers to enter."

HP Inkspiration Awards 2021 will be recognising creative ways organisations have responded to the Covid time through digital printing. Two new categories will be introduced: Collateral supporting this unprecedented time (commercial segment), and Specialty Print supporting this unprecedented time (labels segment).

HP says if you think your work can wow global brands as well as graphic design, packaging, and media experts in terms of overall aesthetics, marketing impact, shelf appeal, design suitability, and media/substrate use, this is the perfect opportunity to showcase what you can do to a wider audience and receive the recognition you deserve.

Submit your entries on or before 15 March. Click here for the entry form. Winners from different categories will be notified prior to the Awards Dinner, where the winning works will be showcased.
