Finat Label Competition opens for entries

All winning entries will be announced and featured during a virtual awards ceremony organised by Finat

European association for the self-adhesive label industry has opened its 41st edition of the Finat Label Competition for entries from converters worldwide.

The goal of the competition is to promote and highlight the advantages and uses of self-adhesive labels as an effective marketing, promotional, or identification tool; to encourage printers and converters to extend the technical and quality boundaries of the self-adhesive and narrow web flexible packaging industries, and to promote the use of label and narrow web techniques on a worldwide basis for the benefit of the label and associated industries in general.

‘We have entered a new year, which again is offering the label industry ample opportunities to show its influence in society's infrastructure, to demonstrate its ability to look beyond the technical boundaries, and to explore new ways of overcoming challenges and push innovation to new limits. In short, the label community remains a spirited, confident, and powerful platform with an aptitude to excel in whichever sector it operates,’ said Finat in a statement. ‘Having said this, we would specifically like to address label converters all over the globe. Now is the time to boost morale amongst your team and show the world your craftsmanship and skill in label printing.’

To qualify for a submission, the label must have been produced between January 1 and December 31, 2020. The winners will be presented with an award; all winning entries will be available to view after the virtual awards ceremony on Finat’s website. This competition also brings a broad exposure of the winning labels in all the label industry media platforms. The winners will also be featured in the Hall of Fame Gallery at Finat’s booth during Labelexpo Europe. 

Deadline for entries is set for Friday, March 26, 2021. Detailed rules and registration can be found on Finat’s website:
