The Print Innovation Awards competition identifies the world’s most innovative print advertisings and products of newspaper and magazine publishers.

The competition is open for newspaper and magazine publishers as well as for advertisers or advertising agencies.

Participation is confidential. WAN-IFRA will only publish the names of award winners.

The Print Innovation Award competition is organised on an annual basis.

Print Innovation projects will be presented in a dedicated brochure later. Successful case studies will also be presented at World Printers Forum Conference 2019.
