Part of the World Label Association programme includes the World Label Awards and SALMA has been sending entries in to these since 2005. The gold medal winners from the Pride In Print Awards are reviewed and the appropriate entries sent for judging each year. Unlike the Pride In Print Awards where multiple golds can be awarded, there is only one winner in each category at the World Label Awards (unless it is a very close call and then they will award an Honorable Mention to the runner-up). 

From the 27 category winners, the judges then go on to choose 5 Best of the Best Awards, one representing each printing process – Flexographic, Letterpress, Digital, Offset and Combination.
