Grand Prix Cyrel® Award 

DuPont Packaging Graphics held its 8th Grand Prix Cyrel® ceremony on April 23rd 2010 at the Dresden Palace in Dresden, Germany hosting more than 200 participants representing companies from Central and Northern Europe.

 “Once again the International Grand Prix Cyrel® represents a significant milestone for the packaging printing industry”, says Björn Meth, business director of 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 400 submissions coming from the flexographic printed packaging industry in Central and Northern Europe. Outstanding register accuracy, highlights holding and excellent smoothness on vignettes have greatly contributed to the exceptional quality of 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.  All the submissions were divided by category: Flexible Packaging, Carrier Bags on film, Bags on coated paper, Bags on uncoated paper, Tag & Label, Corrugated Post-Print B flute and Coarser, Corrugated Post-Print E flute and Finer, Corrugated  Pre-Print, Sacks / Folding Cartons, Best Conversion and Innovation.
