What are the Packaging Innovation Awards?
Innovation begins with you. Since 1986, The Packaging Innovation Awards honor innovations in packaging design, materials, technology and processes across the entire packaging value chain.
We welcome brands, retailers, packaging designers, converters and technology providers around the world to enter and be recognized.
All entries are reviewed and judged by a prestigious, independent panel of international judges with experience throughout the value chain.
Excellence in one, two or the three criteria (technology advancement, responsible packaging and enhanced user experience) define the winners in the silver, gold or diamond category respectively.
