FINAT European Label Forum 2016 recap Awards Ceremony - posted 1 September 2016

L9 World Label Awards

The L9 World Label Awards is a global competition in which currently six continents are participating: USA (TLMI), Japan (JFLP), Europe (FINAT), Australia (FPLMA), New Zealand (SALMA), and India (LMAI). In order for companies to compete and to win an award, their entry has to win a prize in their own local label awards competition first, eg TLMI , FINAT, FPLMA, JFLP, SALMA, or LMAI. Each Association (Chairman of the jury) then selects entries for the WLAA from their nominated or winning entries, which are judged and possibly rewarded with the World Label Award.
