Judging Criteria

How it Works


The program is simple. There are no separate sections for different print or packaging formats. All entries are considered side by side, and evaluated for innovation excellence within four transformative categories.

Judging Criteria


The highest levels of print quality are an expectation for all entries. When evaluating entries judges will conduct an initial screening based on degree of difficulty and execution (relevant to the print format type) and then consider innovation excellence based on the following categories. 

The Entry Form will guide each entrant to submit a supporting statement.

Please use these in preparing your documentation and keep in mind that the more information you can provide the judges, the better.
