MACtac describes it as an event filled with design, creativity, technique, visual impact, debate, and discussion. Nine graphics industry experts, specializing in everything from vinyl installation to wide-format printing to sign graphics, recently gathered in Phoenix, AZ, to judge entries submitted for the North American territory of the 2008 MACtac Graphics Worldwide Awards program, which highlights high-impact visual-communications projects using any MACtac graphics product.
MACtac reports receiving nearly 150 entries to the award program’s four categories: Vehicle Graphics, Technical Achievement, Exterior Signs, and Interior Signs. The industry panel that judged the North American territory of the 2008 MACtac Graphics Worldwide Awards consisted of editors and publishers of sign-industry and digital publications, as well as independent experts in the fields of design, digital printing, signmaking, and application skills.
“The vehicle graphics, interior, and exterior signs categories featured the most entries, showing the breadth of MACtac’s product line, which includes digital media, as well as computer-aided signage, mounting adhesive, and laminating films,” says Rick Moore, director of marketing, MACtac Graphic Products. “The technical category really reflects MACtac’s product innovation by showcasing what inspiration can do when mixed with the art of true application expertise. The MACtac Graphics Worldwide Awards program is the only awards program that reflects current trends in the industry on a global scale, but it is another resource for learning; what works, what doesn’t, and best practices.”
This year marked the third edition of MACtac Graphics Worldwide Awards for the United States, Canada, and Mexico. For more information on the MACtac Graphics Worldwide Awards program, visit www.mactac-world-awards.com/award2008/award01_US.htm.
