Fuji Xerox Unveils New PIXI Award Name and Announces the 2020 Award Winners

Recognizing Excellence and Innovation in Digital Printing

February 25, 2021

SINGAPORE, February 25, 2021 – Fuji Xerox Asia Pacific Pte Ltd announced Innovation Print Awards as the new name for PIXI Awards after 12 years and shared the 27 winning entries in the 2020 Innovation Print Awards (previously called PIXI Awards). The annual competition honours the most outstanding and innovative users of Fuji Xerox graphics communications solutions across the region with entries from Australia, China (including Hong Kong and Taiwan), Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.

The 2020 Innovation Print Awards attracted 242 entries across 16 award categories under application-based and print technology. Coincidentally, there are two new additions to the new award. The first being the “Best Use of Creative Design” under print technology. This new category allows users to capture different types of creativity and innovation in digital printing and we aimed to showcase the omnifarious applications of the Iridesse™ Production Press specialty colours and applications. For the first time in the award’s 12-year history, two entries using Fujifilm Jet Press and Acuity equipment were among the winners.

The returning panel comprising of printing industry experts from the Asian Print Awards, Paul Callaghan and Major Wong Wing Kwong, assessed all entries based on criteria including print quality, appropriate use of digital technology, degree of innovation, business effectiveness and overall aesthetics. With print quality as the key criteria, there were 17 winners from eight Asian countries who won the first place.

“Through this competition, we saw prevalent use of special colours like Gold, Silver and Metallics, and the way in which companies are using these to enhance the work that they print is truly amazing,” comments Paul Callaghan, Head Judge. “The submitted pieces for our judging were avant garde and are only made possible with the recent technological advancements. You can easily guess what we will be looking at for judging in the years ahead. These new processes definitely added even more punch for print buyers and the products they ultimately put into the market.”

Out of 27 winning entries, 18 winning applications were produced using the Iridesse™ Production Press, including the winner of the newly added category, the Special Recognition “Best of the Best” award -- The Print Department from Australia for their winning submission of a Digital Printing Guide.

“It is heartening to receive such overwhelming response from various countries and the continued support from the judges. We hope to inspire more design and print innovations and showcase these talents in the regional platform with the newly named Innovation Print Awards,” shared Scott Mackie, General Manager - Graphics Communications Services Business, Fuji Xerox Asia Pacific Pte Ltd. “Print design is like a piece of art and with the right tools, the final masterpiece can be awe-inspiring.”

Representing the Judging team, Paul conveyed his congratulations to all the winners. “The winners continue to amaze us with work that is second to none and we are sure that the print buyer, their customers, must also be over the moon with the finished results. Print buyers are indeed spoilt for choices with the evolving technology and the plentiful opportunities available to add colours and special processes to their print jobs.”

The winning applications will be showcased in Fuji Xerox Graphic Communication Service Tokyo, Japan and regional Graphic Communication industry events.

To further profile these talents, Fuji Xerox Asia Pacific Pte Ltd will submit all entries Note 1 to the Asian Print Awards, a competition for printers in the region.
