Catalogue partner to rivals Myer and David Jones, IPMG was the winner in 16 major award categories at the Australasian Catalogue Association's annual awards on Friday, taking out one of three top prizes.
Myer - whose catalogues are produced by agency Clemenger BBDO - was named catalogue retailer of the year in the under 1.5 million copies category, and won four subcategories, two of which involved digital personalisation of 50,000 of the 2.5 million copy run.
IMPG and direct mail house SEMA teamed on the production of the Myer Christmas catalogue, which won 'technology on paper - effectiveness' and 'multichannel campaign' categories.
Other top winners were Harvey Norman (under 3.5 million) produced by GP Advertising; Dan Murphy (over 3.5 million copies) produced by Hardie Grant and Red Jelly; and Judges' choice- Peter Alexander 'Mother's Day' produced by Paper Stone Scissors.
Presented at Crown Palladium in Melbourne before 722 guests, the awards recognise expertise and excellence in catalogue and letterbox marketing.
Heavily supported by printers and paper suppliers, the competition contrasts productions with print orders ranging from Mirvac's 3000-copy production, printed by Bambra Press, to the 5.3 million-plus print orders turned but by Franklin Web for clients such as Kmart and Target.
