The Pro Carton Award for the best young designer has become the most successful European award in the field of packaging design. Last year, more than 400 students from 50 design schools from 21 countries participated in the contest. And a new edition is starting!
The awarding of the works to the Best Young Designers Award will be open until mid-May 2019, that is why everyone gets the creative stacks! This academic year teachers can include the Prize in the school curriculum. Four opportunities to win The works can be presented in four categories: Packaging and cardboard creative packaging: food and drink. Emphasis is placed on cardboard as the material for more sustainable food and beverage packaging and its recyclability. Give us a great design test! Packaging and creative cardboard packaging: this category focuses on the use of more sustainable materials for the manufacture of packaging and packaging not intended for food. Everything is packaged. Look around and get inspired! Creative ideas with cardboard: break the molds! We offer you the opportunity to present your ideas for the cardboard outside the market of containers and packaging. Save the planet: Every minute a truck throws its load of plastic waste into the ocean. Show us your ideas on how cardboard packaging can replace plastic packaging and help us save the planet !! Detailed information and rules on the Pro Carton website!
Interconnection with industry
The winners of the 4 categories plus the 6 finalists will be invited, along with their teachers, to the Gala Dinner of the Awards that next year will be held in Malta. The prize for the winners of the 4 categories consists of a visit to the Stora Enso factory and a practical training at AR Packaging in Sweden. Of course, with all the expenses paid! All finalists will receive framed certificates.
