Braving the chilly Wisconsin winter weather, In-plant Printing and Mailing Association board members met recently in Milwaukee to discuss the upcoming IPMA conference, to be held there June 8-12.

As he sat at the IPMA awards banquet last month, watching the video of the In-Print contest judges selecting the Best of Show winner, Steve Rigby was surprisingly calm. Two of Washington State University's Gold-winning pieces were among the final four, and he was feeling rather confident.

The winners of the In-Print 2012 contest have been announced. The contest, judged last week in Kearney, Mo., drew more than 450 entries and yielded 79 winners from 37 different in-plants. These included at least 20 winners that have never won an In-Print award. All told, the judges awarded 35 Gold, 25 Silver, 18 Bronze and one Judges Recognition Award.

A quick look at the agenda for the upcoming In-Plant Printing & Mailing Association (IPMA) conference reveals an information-packed three-day event is in the works. The annual in-plant conference will take place in Kansas City, Mo., from June 24-27.

In a ceremony Wednesday night in Charleston, S.C., the winners of the In-Print 2011 Best of Show awards were revealed.

On March 14, the judges of the In-Print 2011 contest examined more than 400 printed pieces and picked 75 winners. Here they are.
