    The winners of Currie Group’s inaugural State of Indigo competition cheered on their NSW Blues team in a hard-fought State of Origin game 1 win over the ‘Maroons’ at the MCG.

    After eight weeks of tough competition based on the weekly Print Beat scores of HP Indigo printers, the NSW Blues came away with the State of Indigo title.

    The state winners from NSW, Graphic Packaging International and Dashing Group, and Queensland MVP Printcraft were flown to Melbourne to stay overnight as VIP guests of HP and Currie Group before enjoying a corporate suite at the opening game of the 2018 State of Origin series.

    A full corporate hospitality programme allowed the winners to rub shoulders with Origin legends Paul ‘Fatty’ Vautin, Willie Mason and Gordon Tallis.

    The State of Indigo competition is based on the weekly Print Beat scores of HP Indigo printers, with adjustments made to ensure a level playing field – mostly through factoring in week-over-week improvement percentages.
