For the first time, all three were part of the 7-strong expert jury which met up on the day to prepare for the PSI Sustainability Awards. After the preliminary round of judging, a total of 74 finalists qualified for the next stage, in which they will be competing for the only sustainability prize currently awarded to the promotional product industry, which also happens to be celebrating its fifth anniversary this year. The winners of the competition will be announced in the magnificent surroundings of the Wiesbaden Kurhaus on 6th September.
