The 2021 Packaging Innovation Awards Program
After several months of uncertainty concerning the logistics of proceeding with the Packaging Innovation Awards (PIA), due to COVID-19, we are delighted to confirm that this year’s program is about to begin. The judging event that was held virtually last year will be held in person later this fall, much like we have done in past years. While the judges did a marvellous job virtually last year, the opportunity to touch and examine the submitted samples in person undoubtedly helps to generate a better analysis of the applications as well as more engaged discussions.
Submissions will open in August, and we will be keeping our website and social channels updated with the latest information on criteria and deadlines.
We are excited to give continuation to this industry-leading competition and hugely appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding over the past few months as we finalized this year’s program.
Keep a look out for more information over the coming weeks and don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.
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.
