Quality Awards entrants must complete the production details section of the entry form and, importantly, supply four different examples of work. This is most important. Also a short summary for each of the four print samples can be helpful to the jury members. For example, if you enter the label category, we need four different label jobs, with the production details outlined for each of the four jobs. Photocopies are acceptable.
    Note : In previous editions, we have found entries without a company summary scored less.
