On December 7, 2020, this year’s EDP Awards 2020 were handed over in an online presentation to a total of 29 winners, whose products convinced the jury of the European Digital Press Association. The coveted awards were presented for the 14th time, with a slight delay due to Covid‐19, as all the planned dates had to be postponed or cancelled due to the impact of the pandemic, including the original date at drupa in Düsseldorf in June.
The EDP Awards are Europe’s only technology assessment in the industry and an open competition for all products announced and launched in the market within a year. The winners are selected by a commission of experts (the EDP Technical Committee), which evaluate the submitted products according to criteria such as innovation, quality, performance and cost. Due to these strict criteria, there are no voting or other public votes. It is about technical criteria, not popularity. This is the only way EDP can guarantee that manufacturers’ achievements in developing new technologies will be recognized. Thus, the logo of the EDP Awards stands for innovation and quality, offering orientation and providing a neutral recommendation for purchase decisions of users.
