 Q: What is print’s place in a digital world?

Entries will be judged by a panel of experts. The first-place entry will be shared with representatives from printing associations, companies, and suppliers. Although there can only be one winner, the top submissions will be made public on Intergraf’s website. You can view some of the past entries to the Intergraf Young Talent Award at www.intergraf.eu/campaigns/young-talent-award.

Last year, Tom Maskill from the UK was awarded first place. He explained his views on the environmental performance of print: Overall, the print industry is moving in the right direction to become a fully circular operation. I believe we must establish common standards for calculating and reporting on the environmental impact of print. We must also educate our customers and the public on the true impact of print on the environment compared with other communication methods. Tom presented his winning ideas at Intergraf’s Print Matters for the Future conference in Stockholm last May.
