Philosophy

The EDP is a nonprofit Association. Its goal is to be a recognised industry forum and a valuable resource for association members. A large part of its remit is to acknowledge and award the latest developments in R&D in the digital print industry and as a result EDP launched its annual awards programme – the EDP Awards.

The members of the EDP believe that these awards are becoming an authority in acknowledging best in class products across the digital print landscape, and are happy of being able to working with the printing industry.

Agustín Torres, founding Chairman of the EDP: “the strength of the EDP Association is our European-wide reach to hundreds of thousands of readers interested in digital print. Our commitment to them to only award accolades where they are truly deserved is backed up by our independent panel of digital print experts. When a signmaker or digital printer is in the process of researching and purchasing new capital equipment for their print plant, they will look for the EDP Association Award and know that it has been independently scrutinized and meets the exacting standards of their fellow peers.”

Without questioning the internet and globalisation – the most important signs of our time - the members of the Association also believe in the preservation of some traditional values, as the direct relations with people.

The EDP Awards were created to encourage these values and promote the industry.

About us

Company details

The EDP association was founded in October 2006. The publishers of six trade magazines, Desktop Dialog from Germany, Image Reports from England and Ireland, Italian Publisher from Italy, Plakativ / Print & Publishing from Hungary, ProDigital from Spain and Portugal, Publisher from Switzerland and X-media from Austria met to form a Association of magazines with a main editorial focus on digital production. EDP, the European Digital Press Association, was born.

Our goal is none other than to be a forum for the industry and the members of our association.

Consequently, the publishers of each of the magazines wish to acknowledge the value of the research and development tasks of the industry, granting an award to the best products of the year and to inform all the European professionals about such a distinction – the EDP Award.

Another task is to enhance cooperation between all member magazines, be it editorial or commercial. EDP Association is comitted to print but without neclecting the possibilies of the world wide web to communicate and exchange ideas and kow how. Thus unlimited use and free access to the internet is imperative.

During the years the European magazines embodying the EDP as well as our web activities have spread the purpose of the EDP Association. Now, seven years later, the leading magazines in almost all countries of Europe with more than one million professionals as readers are member to EDP.

The logo that identifies EDP members and winning products of the EDP Awards will be thus a quality and innovation mark for the industry and implies being number one.
