Creative Impulse Award 2023

The Creative Impulse Award is an important part of Creativeworld and has developed into the most prestigious prize in the hobby, craft and artists' supplies sector. This year, there were 54 entries, which show how much innovative power there is in the industry. Find out here who won this time.

In total, the expert jury selected three winners in each of the five categories. For each category there were many good applications: sustainable product of the year, artist product of the year, complete set of the year, product of the year and tool of the year. From 4 to 7 February at Creativeworld, the three best entries in each category will be presented in a special area in Hall 1.1 Stand B1. On the first day of the fair, 4 February 2023, the awards ceremony will take place at 12 noon on the Creative Academy stage in Hall 1.1, Stand D81.

"I am delighted that we were able to offer the award this year – with a new partner at our side, the publishing house Chmielorz and its trade magazine Cutes & Friends."

Winners of the Creative Impulse Award 2023

Category: Product of the year

e-mark go: Based on inkjet technology, it enables multicolor prints on almost all absorbent surfaces, such as paper, cardboard, cork, wood, stone, leather and much more. The creative companion, which fits in any handbag, is controlled via a newly developed intuitive app in which individual motifs can be designed. The app stamp impressed the jury with its large selection of digital motifs and the individual design options. Thus, own logos or handlettering can be placed on products. The ease of use and the stability of the images on various materials (such as napkins, wooden packaging, etc.) were also highlighted.

Category: Tool of the year

The box maker is a simple tool to make small boxes. It is a board with attachment and 3 strips of different widths, which are used to determine the height of the box. The product made of local wood convinced the jury with its ecological properties and its practicability. The story of its creation, which was enclosed with the evaluation, also entered into the decision-making process.

Category: Kit of the year

Screen Printing Starter Kits: These sets include all you need to get printing on either paper or fabric. The screen printing starter kits are suitable for all kinds of creations. The jury agreed on the "clever product" that makes screen printing easy to use - even in repetition. What was also convincing was that you can get creative with it and develop your own techniques even without prior knowledge.

Category: Artist product of the year

Set Historical Ink Recipes: The set for making historical inks contains dyes, binders and auxiliaries, as well as recipes for making walnut ink (brown), indigo blue ink (blue), carmine ink/ cochineal ink (red) and Kaiser yellow ink (yellow). The writing inks are made from natural and synthetic water-soluble dyes. They contain no or only small amounts of gum arabic. A "likeable product", as the jury found. The historical background as well as the corresponding information on the vegetable dyes were just as inspiring as the fact that one could continue to work with the self-produced product after use.

Category: Sustainable product of the year

Liquid charcoal is created by charring fruit seeds from the EU area and is therefore vegan and natural. In the 35 ml tube, the colors can be processed directly and are a clean, dust-free way of painting, charcoal drawing and underpainting. The three black shades also convinced the jury considering the aspect of supply chain issues, as regional raw materials (fruit pits) can be used in the production. The three black shades also found favour with the jury.

All products will be presented at Creativeworld in Hall 1.1, Stand B1 until 7 February.
