Lecta and the Top Photographic Creations of the Year

9/19/2017

​​

Spanish national photography awards choose Lecta’s new GardaPremium Natural coated paper for the publication of the prestigious 2016 LUX book.

Lecta reaffirms its support for the world of art, creativity and culture with its premium coated paper as the choice for the LUX Photography Awards Book, a premium edition where emphasizing the importance of every detail is essential.

Since their creation in 1993, the LUX awards have emerged as a touchstone of professional photography in Spain, recognizing the year’s best work by professional photographers, with a special emphasis on innovation and the image’s ability to communicate.

This year, the paper chosen to showcase the LUX winners’ and finalists’ photographs was Lecta’s new PEFC-certified semi-matt coated 170 g/m2 GardaPremium Natural. The paper is specifically designed to guarantee excellent print quality, with a neutral tone to enhance both color and black-and-white photography results.

With the LUX Photography Awards Book, our paper will be in the hands not only of the best professional photographers but also in schools, libraries and the leading book stores in Spain.

Lecta is proud to contribute, once again, to making quality creative work available to a wider audience.
