Silver for drupa report no. 3

Silver for drupa report no. 3


Silver for drupa report no. 3
Messemagazin (trade fair magazine) is firmly established in corporate publishing

The multi-award winning drupa report has won the "Best Of Corporate Publishing Award“ in Silver for the second time in a row, as a special prize in the category "Print&Innovation". The drupa report has therefore once again been honoured as an excellent example of print finishing, material mix and post-press processing. The Forum’s Corporate Publishing prize is awarded every year by a top class jury of experts. Over 700 submitted publications in 36 categories impressed the jury with many new ideas and innovation potential. The patron of the BCP 2012 is Federal Minister of Economics, Dr. Philipp Rösler.

"The drupa report is the best proof that print still has innovation and creativity, even in the digital age," explains Manuel Mataré, Director of drupa at Messe Düsseldorf GmbH. "With the focus on the topic of "paper", we also wanted to underline, that this resource still plays a central and inspiring role in the competition of the media."

In a run of 13,000 copies, the drupa report, as an official medium, is aimed at the worldwide decision makers, multipliers, exhibitors and trade journalists in the industry. The focal topic of the award-winning drupa report no. 3 was paper – both with regards to content as well as in production-related realisation. For example, in the drupa report no. 3, seven different types of paper from the Papier Union were used. The format also changed several times throughout the 62 pages: from DIN A4, to fold-out page, right up to a double gate fold in the centre of the magazine. In this way, paper, in all its facets, its haptics and its diverse possible usages in print communication, shows its effect impressively. High-quality finishes, such as laser punching on the title page, hot foil laminations and scented print, make the drupa report a particularly valuable piece of print. Holger Giffhorn/Giffhorn Design, Wuppertal is responsible for the design of the quality magazine. The drupa report was printed at Druckstudio in Düsseldorf.

Since the first drupa in 1951, the drupa report, as a trade fair newspaper, has reported on the happenings around the world's leading trade fair – back then under the name "DRUPA-Presse". Its success story of more than sixty years is thereby closely linked with the developments and technical possibilities of the print industry – it is always state-of-the-art.

For this reason, apart from the BCP Award in Silver 2011 and 2012, it was also able to pocket many more prizes. The drupa reports no. 3 and 4 (drupa 2008) for example, won the red dot award 2008 for their excellent design. The drupa report no. 4 (drupa 2008) won a gold medal at the "Sappi European Printers of the Year Award 2008“ in the magazine category. Also shining in the medal cabinet: The "icma Award of Excellence" (drupa report no. 3, drupa 2012) as well as a nomination for the Designpreis Deutschland 2010 (Design Award Germany 2010) (drupa report no. 3 und 4, drupa 2008). The next drupa report will appear in autumn of 2013. The next drupa will take place from 02 to 15 June 2016.
