Now in its 27th year, The Antalis Review is designed to reward those who have created exceptional print work using Antalis media, with the awards attracting some of the most talented designers and printers in the industry each year.

 

Category awards up for grabs this year include Best Direct Mail, Best Corporate Brochures and Best Luxury Retail Packaging, to name but a few.

 

Every piece of work entered is judged by a panel of leading industry experts and all finalists are invited to the awards event and are published in The Antalis Review book, with winners receiving a coveted The Antalis Review Award trophy.

 

This year Antalis will host an exclusive circus-inspired awards evening, which will take place on 18th September at Circus London; an opulent mirrored cocktail club famed for combining classic circus cabaret and cuisine. 

 

Emma Oliver, creative papers product manager at Antalis says: “The Review has become a major highlight of the industry calendar since its inception back in 1991, providing a unique platform for us to come together and celebrate those truly exceptionally talented printers and designers who continue to go the extra mile with their creative concepts.

 

“This year’s event promises to be bigger and better than ever, with a decadent circus themed ceremony planned at one of London’s hottest spots. The awards are now officially open for entries so now is the time to ‘step right up’ and show us what you’ve got!”

 

 

Entrants are invited to submit design pieces that have been printed on Antalis’ vast choice of paper stock from now until 29th June 2018, which is the official closing date for entries.

Last year’s winners included The Office of Optimism in the Overall Best in Design category for ‘The White Review No 19’, printed by the Push Print on Olin Regular Natural White. Hailed as a ‘cultural revolution’, The White Review No 19 was commended by the judges for its strong handling of type and great image placement, resulting in an accomplished, highly impactful publication. 

 

Also winning the Overall Best in Print category was Gavin Martin Colournet for ‘Embassy Gardens Property Books’, as designed by Jaques Vanzo. Using Olin Smooth Absolute White both for the cover and text material, the piece was praised for its considered choice of coloured paper stock, combined with edge printing, focused finished and overall excellent execution.
