SYDNEY 11 JULY 2017: Canon Australia continues to build excitement around the Océ Arizona Awards, after being officially launched at PacPrint. These Awards celebrate outstanding work produced on an Océ Arizona printer, and highlight the creativity and imagination of Canon customers by showcasing what these printers are truly capable of.
Canon Professional Print General Manager, Adrian Morris said this competition will recognise our customer’s skill, effort and pride in producing high-quality applications utilising their Océ Arizona printers.
“A lot of the work produced are bespoke creations, requiring the best equipment and limitless imagination. They’re designed to enhance the brands of their customers – so technical expertise, creativity and effective design are paramount to achieving a lasting impression.”
There are 3 categories.
Most Technical – the application will be high value, multi-layered print on objects that demonstrate high level of difficulty.
Most Effective – the application will be high impact but not necessarily technical. The project objective and the environment in which the application appears will be considered.
Most Creative and Innovative – the application will be advanced or original.
The winner of each category will receive an EOS M5 Single Kit valued at $1,949. Entrants are encouraged to enter multiple projects and can place projects in multiple categories but can only place in one. Projects that cannot be reproduced can be entered as hi-resolution images. Entrants should include images from multiple angles if possible, to help judges understand the context of the project.
Entries will be judged by Canon’s Product Manager for Display Graphics Garry Muratore. Garry has over four decades of industry experience, he is a fellow of the Lithographic Institute of Australia and has judged digital print at the National Print Awards and various state based PICA awards.
Garry Muratore said the Arizona series of flatbed UV printers are recognised as best in class, they are part of an important tool set when creating high end effectual digital print applications.
“I’m constantly amazed to what our customer base continues to produce using this technology. I look forward to being a part of a program that recognises their skill and effort.”
