It's refreshing to see that printing skill and solid design work still count for something! Check out the winning work at the FESPA Awards 2013. The winners received their prizes at the organization’s 50th anniversary dinner at Old Billingsgate in London, England on Thursday, June 27, 2013.

The prize for Best in Show went to Switzerland’s Atelier für Siebdruck Lorenz Boegli for their screen-printed entry, "Josephine." The image is one of ten screen- and digitally printed designs of Josephine Napoleon for French jewellery brand Chaumet.

The Runner Up Award was won by India’s Studio Reya for their T-shirt titled, "Indian." The Michel Caza People’s Choice Award went to Sweden’s Tobex AB for their stunning textile titled, "Bluebells."

Nigel Steffens, FESPA’s CEO, says, “We were overwhelmed with the quality of award entries, with more than 385 entries from members of FESPA’s national associations around the world. The judges consisted of technical screen and digital print experts as well as top industry editors, were impressed with the high calibre entries and outstanding creativity overall. It proved to be a very difficult decision for the judges to choose the winning entries this year as the quality of the work was exceptional.”

Georgia Andreadi, a freelance designer from Greece, was voted the winner of FESPA Fabric’s 2013 Design-a-Tee competition, bagging the grand prize of €2,000. This is the second time FESPA Fabric has hosted the design competition.
