Every year the Technical Image Press Association (TIPA), whose members include editors and journalists from photography magazines around the world, judges products launched in a 12-month period for innovation, technology, design, ease-of-use and price-to-performance ratio.

This year, the Epson Expression Photo XP-950 was named Best Photo Printer, while the Best Photo Projector was named as the Epson EH-TW7200.

The citation for the XP-950 reads,

The Epson Expression Photo XP-950 takes the "all-in-one" concept (a multifunction printer that, in the XP-950, includes text and photo printing, scanning and copying) to a new level with 11x17 inch capability using Claria Photo HD six-colour inks. Delivering 4 x 6 inch photos in less than 10 seconds, the unit also allows for wireless printing from phone, tablet or computer plus mobile solutions using the Epson Connect collection of apps. Scans up to 4800 dpi are available, as well as direct CD/DVD printing and adedicated photo paper tray. A dedicated rear tray allows for printing on heavier card stock and a 3.5-inch LCD with "gesture" navigation helps the user make use of all functions and features quickly and easily.
