- DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation are industry’s longest running, independently judged competition
- Winners to be announced in May 2013, with deadline for entries on February 28
DuPont Packaging has made a call for entries to its 25th Awards for Packaging Innovation.
The DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation are the industry’s longest running, independently judged competition.
Packaging designers, converters, consumer goods producers, retailers and equipment manufacturers from around the world are encouraged to enter new packaging that has been commercialized since January 1, 2011.
There is no fee for entry and DuPont materials do not need to be in the packaging structure.
In evaluating entries, jurors will consider excellence in one or more of these areas: innovation, sustainability and cost/waste reduction.
The international jury panel for the next DuPont Awards will be headed by Brian Wagner, vice president at PTIS. The rest of the global jury is still being formed.
Winners will be announced in May 2013.
Shanna Moore, global director of sustainability at DuPont Packaging & Industrial Polymers, said: ‘Over the years, packaging innovations selected as winners of the DuPont Award have changed the way we live.
‘In reaching the program’s 25th year, we would like to particularly recognize breakthroughs that reduce food waste, a pressing need globally.
‘The program will retain its focus on innovation, sustainability and cost/waste reduction. We look forward to entries that demonstrate excellence in addressing these issues. This is a 25th anniversary year for us, and we are excited about honoring some of those past winners as well as the winners of this milestone year.’
