PIA Opens Submissions for the 2017 InterTech Technology Awards
PITTSBURGH — January 31, 2017 — Printing Industries of America is now seeking submissions to its 2017 InterTech Technology Awards. For the past 39 years, these awards have honored the development of technologies predicted to have a major impact on the graphic communications industry.
“The InterTech Technology Awards recognize the breakthrough products that have the greatest potential for shaping the graphic communications industry,” said Jim Workman, Vice President of Technology and Research, Printing Industries of America. “In my tenure, I have seen some truly remarkable technologies honored, and each year the depth and breadth of entries becomes even greater.”
The InterTech competition is open to manufacturers and suppliers of equipment and software involved in any aspect of graphic communications operations. To be honored with an InterTech Award, a technology must be recognized by the judging panel to meet the following criteria:
- Be truly innovative, not just an evolutionary improvement to an existing product
- Enable printers to operate more efficiently or offer new products or services
- Be commercially available, yet not in widespread use
The final deadline for entry is June 2, 2017 with an early-bird discount available until March 31, 2017. Judging is held in mid-July and winners will be announced shortly after. Awarded technologies will be presented with the coveted InterTech Star at the Premier Print Awards Gala on Sunday, September 10, 2017 in Chicago. Visit www.printing.org/intertech for more information.
