Mohawk Fine Papers announces the combination of its three design competitions — the Mohawk Show, the i-Tonies and the Strathmore Graphics Gallery — into one annual event.

“Mohawk Show 12 will celebrate extraordinary design and print communication produced on Mohawk paper, whether it’s an identity on Strathmore, a variable-data campaign printed on an HP Indigo or a Tiffany’s catalog on Mohawk Navajo,” says Jane Monast, director of communications. “In the past we’ve recognized this diversity through a number of smaller, more focused competitions. However, we realized that winners of these competitions were not getting the recognition they deserved, so we’ve combined them and extended the deadline to May 31, 2012, in order to accommodate the different competition timelines.”

Four best-of-show winners will be selected from all entries, regardless of format or print category. The show is open to work produced between June 1, 2010 and May 31, 2012. $5,000 will be paid to each of the best-of-show design teams.

New special categories include “Sustainable Design,” “Strathmore Showcase” and digital-only “Print Innovation.”

Entries will be judged in June 2012 on the basis of higher thinking in graphic design, excellence in print production and appropriate paper choice. See
