"The HP Print Excellent Awards concentrate on innovation," says Sophie Matthews-Paul. "However, they also look at environmentally responsible printing. We considered how entrants demonstrated creativity and skill. Seeing how the criteria were interpreted in the submissions from different parts of the world was very interesting."
A ceremony for the winners will be held in Düsseldorf, Germany on May 3rd.
