Huge rise in entries for Innovation Excellence Awards

Posted on by in

THE number of entries for the 2018 Stationers’ Company Innovation Excellence Awards has risen by over a third.

Winners will be announced at a lunch in London on June 26, with organisers revealing this year’s awards, which celebrate “innovation, creativity and excellence”,  have attracted 43 entries, an increase of 34%.

Jonathan Drori, chairman of the Stationers’ Company Innovation Excellence Awards said, “Judging innovation is never easy because, of course, every entry includes something that hasn’t been done before. Again this year, the judges have had a bumper crop of excellent and exciting innovations to consider, often bringing art and technology together and entered by companies ranging from tiny firms to big multinationals from every one of our sectors.

“There have been impressive developments in printing and packaging, in environmental improvements, in the latest augmented and virtual reality, in education and training and even in entire business models.

“The panel has been particularly pleased to see such an exciting and diverse set of entries. Everyone says this is a time of unprecedentedly rapid change; judging these awards has enabled the panel to observe the nuts and bolts of this change first-hand.”
