In 2019, GS1 New Zealand and WelTec joined together to bring the Barcode Design Awards to WelTec / Whitireia graphic design students.
The Awards programme began in March 2019 and culminated in the Award Ceremony in July highlighting students who have designed innovative and technically correct barcodes.
The winners were announced on Tuesday 31 July to an anxious audience, eager to hear the winners named. Judges were highly impressed with the level of innovative and creative barcode entries. They thought our designer of the future were in good hands with the level displayed in the entries.
