The Winners of In-Print 2020
The winners of In-Print 2020 are in, and two university in-plants lead the pack, boasting seven awards each. The University of North Texas and the University of Oklahoma are tied for the most awards in the only printing contest exclusively for in-plants.
Judging took place on Sept. 23, after a long delay due to COVID-19. Wearing masks, four in-plant managers served as judges and examined all 351 entries, selecting 64 Gold, Silver, and Bronze winners, plus four additional Judges' Recognition Award winners.
The University of Oklahoma earned an impressive six Gold awards, while the University of North Texas took home three.
Other big winners in the contest were Excellus BlueCross BlueShield and Oregon State University, each winning five awards. Excellus won three Gold awards and while OSU earned two.
Also notable is Bloomberg LP, with four In-Print 2020 awards. In addition, four in-plants earned three awards each: the Church of Scientology International, Kohler Co., Messiah University, and the University of Texas at Austin.
After all winners had been picked, the judges reexamined all the Gold award winners and selected one Best of Show from the offset winners and another from the non-offset winners. Awards are traditionally presented during IPMA’s June conference, which did not take place this year. Plans are for the 2020 awards to be presented at IPMA’s 2021 conference, at which time the Best of Show winners will also be revealed.
In-Print, the only printing contest exclusively for in-plants, is a partnership between In-plant Impressions and the In-plant Printing and Mailing Association.
