The “Gregor International Calendar Award” may be justifiably described as the most important competition of the print and media sector in Europe.

The event organizers of the world’s largest calendar show are the German Federal Ministry of Finance and Economy, the Graphic Club of Stuttgart and the German Print and Media Association.

With his CHANGZHOU calendar, Stuttgart photographer Nicolai Rapp succeeded in several categories:

  • in the category “Photo Calendar Award” as the best photo calendar
  • in the category “Advertising Calendar Award” with the “Gold” award

Elanders GmbH was significantly involved in the success of this project with conceptual ideas and the technical realization. The highest praise was also showered upon Elanders in an eulogy from the Stuttgart photographer/photojournalist and member of the jury, Andreas Langen.

“Best digital printing – attained by the Elanders company, achieves an impression that is virtually indistinguishable from artist print in museum quality”, stated Andreas Langen during his eulogy.
