EDP AWARDS 2019
28 Trophies for EDP Awards 2019 Winners

During Fespa 2019 in Munich the European Digital Press Association (EDP) celebrated the winners of their 13th EDP Awards contest

If Europe’s 21 leading trade magazines with an editorial focus on digital print processes, united in the European Digital Press Association (EDP), yearly honour the best technological developments with the popular EDP Awards, these are selected according to criteria like achievement, quality and costs. Thus the EDP Awards offer orientation and give a neutral recommendation for purchase decisions.
The EDP Awards are an open contest for all products without any limitation or provenience. All new products and developments announced or presented within the last 12 months and available for testing by the EDP jury members are entitled to participate. The EDP Awards honour the best of them.
Out of more than 100 entries in 2019 the EDP Technical Committee finally selected 28 products as EDP Award winners within five main categories.
