NSW has won Currie Group’s inaugural State of Indigo competition, claiming the hard-fought series and booking themselves tickets to Game 1 of the actual State of Origin in Melbourne.

Though NSW doesn’t often have much to celebrate in the rugby State of Origin, the Blues came away with the win in Currie Group’s State of Indigo printing contest after eight weeks of slugging it out with the Maroons through the medium of HP PrintOS Print Beat scores.

“It was a lot of fun, a game between printers to find the most productive HP Indigo printer in NSW and QLD,” said Phil Rennell, sales and marketing director at Currie Group. “We ran the numbers and compiled handicaps to make sure everyone had a fair chance of coming out on top and winning the prize.”

The state winners from NSW, Graphic Packaging International and Dashing Group, will join Queensland series ‘most valuable player’, Printcraft, at Game 1 of the State of Origin at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on 6 June. They’ll fly to Melbourne and stay overnight as VIP guests of HP and Currie Group. A full corporate hospitality programme hosted by Michael Roberts from Channel 7 will allow the winners to rub shoulders with ‘Origin legends’ Paul ‘Fatty’ Vautin, Willie Mason and Gordon Tallis.

“Congratulations from Currie Group and HP to our winners, and thanks to all our participating NSW and QLD HP Indigo customers who were highly engaged, very passionate, and displayed great sportsmanship throughout 
this unique competition,” said Rennell.

Don’t feel left out if you’re neither Blue nor Maroon, either. Currie Group has plenty more initiatives coming for other states and territories and other sporting codes. “We’ll have something for everyone with a HP Indigo press,” said Rennell.
