World’s Best Print Competition Gets Even Better!

By // April 27, 2015 // Posted in Contests & Competitions, Industry News, WPPI News

We’re in the final stretch of returning everyone’s Print Competition cases from our 16×20 and we’re actually 2 weeks ahead of schedule! Each year we look for ways to improve the process and will definitely be making some changes so we can make our workflow even faster next time. That said, it’s no easy task given that from beginning to end we checked in over 3,000 entries, got them to Vegas, judged them on time (thanks to the efforts of everyone involved!), held an awards ceremony 2 days later, AND gave everyone their scores within those few days. It’s a daunting task, but it’s our commitment to the community that keeps us rolling…despite all of the irritating paper cuts. :)

Also, I’ve got some exciting news! Many of you noticed we had a film crew during the print comp, which was our first-ever effort of filming the judging process, and I’m excited to see the results. There’s over 200 hours of footage—so it’s a lot to edit—but we will be done very soon. In the meantime, check out the awesome video of this year’s competition below!

Thanks again to everyone who participated! It was a great year! Members! Don’t forget the First Half Competition is now open! Not a member?!? Go here and become a member today!
