Canon Océ Arizona entries open
Three categories work is judged by – most technical, most effective and most creative and innovative

Canon Australia has opened entries for its Océ Arizona Awards, which celebrates the work created by Canon Océ Arizona printers, the country’s best selling flatbed UV print systems.

There are three categories in which work will be judged by, the first is most technical – the application will be high value, multi-layered print on objects that demonstrate high level of difficulty. Second category is most effective – the application will be high impact but not necessarily technical. The project objective and the environment in which the application appears will be considered. Lastly, most creative and innovative – the application will be advanced or original.

Adrian Morris, professional print general manager, Canon Australia says this competition will recognise its customer’s skill, effort and pride in producing high-quality applications using their Océ Arizona printers.

“A lot of the work produced are bespoke creations, requiring the best equipment and limitless imagination. They are designed to enhance the brands of their customers – so technical expertise, creativity and effective design are paramount to achieving a lasting impression.”

Entrants are encouraged to enter multiple projects and can place projects in multiple categories but can only place in one. Projects that cannot be reproduced can be entered as hi-resolution images. Entrants should include images from multiple angles if possible, to help judges understand the context of the project.

Judge is Garry Muratore, product manager for display graphics at Canon Australia. Muratore has four decades of experience in print, and he is a Fellow of the Lithographic Institute of Australia, and has judged digital print at the National Print Awards and various state based PICA awards.

Muratore says the Arizona series of flatbed UV printers are recognised as best in class, they are part of an important tool set when creating high end effectual digital print applications.

Applications are open now and will close on September 29. The winners will be announced October 12.
