Corporate News

Awarding innovation and excellence in digital-printing

SINGAPORE, January 23, 2018 – Fuji Xerox Asia Pacific Pte Ltd announced the 45 winning entries of its PIXI (Printing Innovation with Xerox Imaging) Awards 2017. The 10th anniversary of this annual competition recognized innovation and excellence in digitally-printed work from users of Fuji Xerox solutions across the region – with entries from the countries and areas: Australia, China, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam. 

PIXI Awards 2017 attracted 236 entries in 26 categories, with the introduction of two new categories -the 5th Colour Award and the Digital Label and Packaging Award. In line with current digital-printing trends for image quality value-add, the 5th Colour Award evolved from the innovative use of 5th colour toner such as gold and silver. The Digital Label and Packaging Award category was introduced to recognize the remarkable work in this growing segment*1

“Fuji Xerox Asia Pacific is delighted to celebrate its 10th consecutive year of PIXI Awards,” said Steve Ford, general manager, production sales and marketing, Fuji Xerox Asia Pacific. “Our two new categories this year have expanded the opportunities for our partners to showcase their outstanding work in 5th colour application and digital labels and packaging. It is inspiring to see how our latest technologies and services are manipulated to create such innovative offerings, especially for the label and packaging market. This remarkable work fuels our anticipation for continued strong market growth.” 

An independent expert panel of printing industry professionals selected winners of the PIXI Awards 2017, including publisher and chairperson of the Asian Print Awards, Paul Callaghan, and print industry veterans, Major Wong Wing Kwong and Alf Carrigan.  Evaluation criteria include: print quality, appropriate use of digital technology, degree of innovation, business effectiveness and overall aesthetics. Importance is placed on the balance between quality of the digital prints and delivery of desired results with Fuji Xerox solutions. 

This year, the “Best in Show” was awarded to Beijing Zhong Xian Tuo Fang Science and Technology Development Co., Ltd. for their submission of The Art Collections of Beijing Opera Master Mei Lanfang, using the Xerox® iGen® 150 Press.  

“It is a treat to see such a stunning reproduction in any format,” said Paul Callaghan, publisher and chairperson of the Asian Print Awards, and head of the 2017 PIXI panel judge. “The entries that we received showcased a high level of complexity in design, production and finishing and must be seen to be believed.  Events like this truly help us understand the importance of having the right printing tools to bring a design to life!” 

Winners will be showcased in the Fuji Xerox Integrated Customer Experience Center (ICEC) *2 and regional Graphic Communications industry events. 

For an opportunity to receive further acknowledgement for their pieces, Fuji Xerox Asia Pacific submits all entries*3 into the Asian Print Awards, a competition for printers in the region.
