Deadline Approaching for SGIA’s Golden Image Awards

The 2012 SGIA Expo (Las Vegas, October 18–20) is just five weeks away, and the deadline to enter your best prints in the Golden Image Awards Competition is approaching quickly. The esteemed contest — open to SGIA printer members — celebrates industry-leading excellence and covers almost every item, no matter how complex, created by specialty imaging.

“Marketing Alliance Group was thrilled to be honored with an SGIA Golden Image award,” says previous winner Julie Pownall, director for retail services. “I am so glad there is an avenue for screen and digital printers to be recognized for quality work.”

Entries must arrive by October 5, 2012 to be considered. All submissions will be displayed in the Golden Image Gallery at the Expo, where they will be judged on Wednesday, October 17, 2012 prior to the opening of the show. Each submission may earn one of four awards:

  • The highly-coveted Award of Excellence (Gold), recognizing the highest achievement possible in a given category
  • The Award of Distinction (Silver), awarded for exemplary quality
  • The Award of Merit (Bronze) for outstanding performance
  • Or a certificate of Honorable Mention for commendable performance
