3 July 2007 — London (UK): OPI is now accepting calls for entries and nominations for the European Office Awards 2008.
This year sees the first ever OPI Editor’s Choice Award, a category open to nominations, which seeks to recognise companies or individuals making significant contributions to the industry. This award is open to all those players who do not necessarily slot easily into the other, more defined awards categories.
A clear distinction will also be made this year between marketing initiatives and product innovation. The judges of the newly created New Product Innovation Award will be looking for product originality and innovation combined with a proven sales record.
Another new category is the Emerging Vendor of the Year Award, which is looking to reward the efforts of new entrants to the industry. A dynamic industry relies on new products and companies and OPI wishes to recognise those new players making significant progress in the OP market.
To enter the European Office Products Awards, please download the relevant forms from www.opi.net/awards2008. Entries must be received by 5pm (GMT) on 5 October 2007.
The winners will be announced at a presentation dinner on 24 January at the Congress Center at Messe Frankfurt during Paperworld.
