2018 Pentawards Packaging Design Competition

Deadline: 25-Feb-2018
Worldwide Packaging Design Competition
Created in January 2007, the Pentawards are recognised as the most prestigious worldwide competition exclusively devoted to packaging design in all its forms. They are open to all those who are associated with the creation or marketing of packaging from every country in the world. The primary mission is to increase the stature of packaging design and those who create it.
Each year, packaging from around the world is judged by an international jury of 12 highly respected designers and packaging design Directors from major companies. The jury selects the winners based on the creative quality and the marketing relevance of the works presented. Winners receive bronze, silver, gold, platinum and diamond Pentawards.
No less than 55 different categories allow any type of packaging to compete and be judged against similar creations. This means that a bottle of wine is not evaluated next to a beer, washing powder next to gardening materials, or even a bottle of perfume next to make-up.
By participating in the Pentawards, packaging designers, design students, brand-owners and packaging producers have the opportunity to compare their creations to those from around the world, and have the opportunity to win a prestigious award that allows them to show the world their creativity and expertise.
The deadline for submissions is February 25, with a late deadline of March 11, 2018.
