FujifilmFujifilm PPLA Colour Printer Awards 2006 : Fujifilm has unveiled details of the PPLA Colour Printer Awards 2006, designed to reward the unsung heroes of the UK professional image industry. The prestigious awards scheme, which is entering into its 12th year, supports the work of both printers and professional labs and is a unique initiative. For 2006, Fujifilm is offering the overall PPLA award winner a unique prize which includes a comprehensive, month long marketing package worth £3,000 for the winning professional lab whilst still awarding the overall Colour printer of the year a cash prize of £1,000. The marketing package can include professional consultancy in public relations, advertising, direct marketing or design.

The overall winner will be selected from all entrants and will be able to market itself as an official Fujifilm award winner. The winning lab will also become Fujifilm’s official printer for an entire year, and will undertake all photographic printing work required for the organisation. The Fujifilm/PPLA Colour Printer Awards recognise the ever-changing methods used by printers and professional labs alike and a number of changes have been introduced for 2006 to reflect the work carried out by today’s professional labs. The ‘Buildings and Landscapes’ category is new for 2006 and will celebrate work previously spread across the ‘Buildings and Industry’ and ‘Land, Sea and Air’ categories.

‘People and Occasions’ & ‘Digital Retouching’ category
The ‘People and Occasions’ category remains unchanged from previous years and will continue to reward work chosen for its excellence in colour tone across fashion photography, portraiture and images from social occasions. The individual ‘Digital Retouching’ category has been in place for three years and has been removed for 2006 to reflect the movement of digital processing techniques from specialist to mainstream service offerings. At the same time, Fujifilm recognises that hand printing remains a popular choice for many professionals and encourages high quality entries derived from both modern and traditional printing techniques into the 2006 awards.

Fujifilm Printer Awards 2006 - Ceremony in April 2006
Award entries will be accepted from 21st November 2005 until 28th February 2006 for the ‘Buildings and Landscapes’ and ‘People and Occasions’ categories. Entries should be finished 12 x18 prints and for the first time will be accepted on any paper surface from the Fujicolor Crystal Archive range. Judging will take place in March 2006 before the awards ceremony in April 2006. Information and entry forms will be distributed to printers and professional labs from November 2005 and entrants will also be able to download entry forms and view previous winning entries online at the website of Fujifilm UK.

Fujifilm Printer Awards 2006 - Entries
Darren Peake, marketing manager for photofinishing at Fujifilm, comments: “The Fujifilm/PPLA Colour Printer Awards 2006 have evolved to reflect the changing nature of the industry. New techniques and working practices have merged with the traditional to offer a wide range of tools to industry professionals. Crystal Archive Paper is designed to help professionals achieve the highest quality results ever seen and it is a very exciting time for the professional imaging market.

Optimum quality prints
“The awards recognise those who use their expertise to exploit these techniques to deliver excellence. We have spent a significant amount of time speaking with key people from the industry to ensure that the awards reflect the excellent work carried out in the UK. Achieving optimum quality prints is crucial to delivering a high quality product and developing relationships between photographers, printers and professional labs.

Fujifilm Colour Printer awards 2006
“We look forward to seeing the entries for the 2006 competition as the awards scheme continues to go from strength to strength.” Andrew Frith, chairman of the PPLA, adds: “The PPLA recognises that it is crucial for professional labs to take part in the Fujifilm/PPLA Colour Printer awards 2006 in order to recognise the fantastic work carried out in the UK. We could like to encourage every lab and lab owner to assist their staff in entering the competition this year. “The changes that Fujifilm has made for 2006 have taken the awards to a new level and made it very attractive for professional labs to take part.”
