Corinthia Towers

DuPont Packaging Graphics held its 8th Grand Prix Cyrel® ceremony on 10thth – 11th June, 2010 at the Corinthia Towers Hotel in Prague (Czech Republic). The awards ceremony took place in conjunction with the Flexo Print Pack Congress, along with presentations by DuPont Packaging Graphics, EskoArtwork and Tomas Sedlacek (Institute of Economic Prague).

“Once again the International Grand Prix Cyrel® represents a significant milestone for the packaging printing industry,” said Björn Meth, business director – DuPont Packaging Graphics EMEA. “The works awarded at the ceremony showed an impressive level of quality that is clearly overrunning previous award winners.”

Since 1982, the Grand Prix Cyrel® competition seeks to promote the growth of flexography within the printing packaging industry. It has developed into a key event for the whole flexo industry that demonstrates packaging technologies and techniques, and fosters strategic exchanges among packaging experts worldwide.

Award recipients were drawn from more than 450 submissions coming from the flexographic printed packaging industry of the Central and Eastern Europe (NCE) region that includes: Czech Republic, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Hungary, Ukraine, Belorussia and Russia. Outstanding register accuracy, highlights holding, monitored got gain, practical control of the stages of the production cycle and excellent smoothness on vignettes have greatly contributed to the exceptional quality of the submissions.

The flexo printing packages submitted were evaluated on criteria such as design, substrate selection, quality and difficulty of reproduction and printing, and final printed package appearance and functionality.  The submissions were evaluated in the following categories: Carrier Bags, Corrugated Post-Print B flute and Coarser, Corrugated Post-Print E flute and Finer, Flexible Packaging, Tag & Label, Best Conversion and others specialities.
