Lenstar Lenticular Print Award
supported by drupa 2012
The second edition of the Lenstar Lenticular Print Award (LLPA) has kicked off and is open for entries! Organized in the context of the drupa Messe, with the support of drupa innovation park (dip) and drupa print media fair 2012, the name “Lenstar Lenticular Print Award (LLPA) supported by drupa 2012” has been adopted for this year’s edition. The LLPA has specifically been created to reward and encourage companies and individuals in the development and use of lenticular printing throughout the marketing and communication mix.
The LLPA is an incredible opportunity for the graphic arts community to recognize the growing importance of lenticular imaging as a product differentiator and a mechanism for ensuring that promotional efforts stand out from the crowd. The award is an initiative of DP Lenticular and www.lenstar.org, an organization committed to bringing the latest information on lenticular and new direct-to-lens lenticular printing technologies. This year’s edition of the Lenstar Lenticular Print Award supported by drupa 2012 also benefits from the support of Heidelberg and Fujifilm.

Some members of the 2011 edition, like Mrs. Michèle Bonnet, already committed their support for the 2012 edition: “It is because of my father Maurice Bonnet contributed in a really essential way to open the way on the potential of the lenticular 3D images that I am happy to be a member of the jury of the Lenstar Lenticular Print Award.”
Entries are judged based on the following criteria: creation (relevance and impact of the message, and originality), technical prepress (DPI quality, depth), technical printing (color registration, phasing, and colorimetric profiling).
