Successful TIPA 2021 World Awards Ceremony at PHOTOPIA in Hamburg, Germany

Madrid, 6 October, 2021

The TIPA World Award presentation ceremony took place on Friday, September 24, 2021 on the PHOTOPIA stage (Hall A4) during the four-day Festival of Imaging in Hamburg, Germany. The event was attended by representatives of the winning companies as well as broadcast live to a worldwide audience, a first for the TIPA World Awards and an achievement that fits well within the “Share Your Vision” concept of the PHOTOPIA exhibition.

The program featured welcoming remarks by Bernd Aufderheide, President and CEO of Hamburg Messe and Congress GmbH, who both introduced the new and different exhibition concept represented by PHOTOPIA and welcomed the new yearly partnership between PHOTOPIA and the TIPA World Awards ceremony and presentation. The ceremony was hosted by TIPA Chairman Thomas Gerwers, joined by TIPA board member Roland Franken, who read the role of honors for the 40 TIPA World Awards awarded this year.  The event also included video acceptance messages from the winning companies who could not attend, a benefit of the livestream mode of presentation that will be a regular part of future TIPA World Award and PHOTOPIA Hamburg events.
