Ovato Aldi job takes Judges' Choice at RMC awards
The Judges' Choice Award at the Real Media Collective Awards on Friday night was the Aldi Supermarkets 'Christmas: The More the Merrier 18' catalogue, printed by Ovato.
The 40pp Aldi catalogue, with an undisclosed print run in the millions, was one of many award winning entries printed by Ovato, which also included a batch of Woolworths jobs. Adrian O'Connor, CEO Print & Residential Distribution at Ovato said, “Ovato's clients dominated on the night, taking home over half of all awards", adding, "The energy, talent and passion for print was great to see.
"It is about the clients, it is a great night for them, a recognition of all the work they put in to the catalogue before we get the files."
IVE Group was the other major printer seeing its catalogues on the winners podium, with its Coles print products praised by the client. Natalie Taylor, national sales director at IVE divisions Blue Star Web and Franklin Web said, “What a night of celebration at the 2019 Real Media Awards, proudly sponsored by IVE.
