Here are the 15 categories of the 2023 Gutenberg Contest:

Remember that categories don’t take into account the printing process (except for the 100% Digital category). The same category can contain entries that have been produced in offset, digital printing, screen printing, ink jet, flexography or a combination of different processes.
