The Card Co. secures Gold at their first ever Dubai International Print Awards
Posted by Chris Connor on Thu, 11 Apr 2013
The seventh edition of the Dubai International Print Awards (DIPA) took place at Madinat Jumeirah on Tuesday, 10th April 2013. Having never participated in the awards, we were unsure what to expect. Having produced some stunning pieces throughout our first year operating from our boutique workshop in DIFC, it was a meticulous process to finalize the work we would enter. We headed to the Madinat with a positive attitude however, being our first show, we couldn’t be sure of our chances.
As the awards got underway, it was clear that the record number of participants had made the competition extremely fierce. Watching award after award, it was evident that the work being produced in this region is truly world class with many Dubai-based businesses clinching the top accolades.
We could not believe what the night had in store for us. Against the odds, The Card Co. cleaned up in the “Cards” category by claiming the much-coveted Gold award for “Digital Cards” as well as the Silver award for “Offset Cards”.
Speak after the ceremony; Chief Executive Ramzi Razian said, “Taking home awards from each of the categories we entered was a fantastic achievement for The Card Co. in our first year of the competition; but to take home Gold AND Silver is an outstanding accomplishment and testament to all the hard work done by everyone. These awards are not won by individuals but by the entire Card Co. family”.
The Card Co. would like to thank the PPG judging panel for recognizing our hard work. We would also like to congratulate the other winners who have really raised the bar for next year’s competition and given us a glimpse of what we could be up against!
