Carton packaging continues to make gains worldwide. Successful solutions made of cartonboard are defining the future in virtually all markets. Not only is cartonboard by far the most sustainable material, it also meets all the requirements of the continuously changing multi-channel world. The ProCarton Carton Excellence Award is Europe’s most prestigious award for carton packaging. Established over 20 years ago, the event has continually got better and better with a consistent increase in Europe-wide participation. This is where the best and most successful ideas are highlighted every year.
So, give your packaging designers the recognition they deserve! Enter your most creative and successful ideas of recent years by 11th May 2017 – packaging that you launched successfully onto the European market within the past three years. All partners of the supply chain are invited to enter – cartonboard manufacturers, carton manufacturers, designers, brand owners and the retail trade.
The awards are divided into nine different categories, with the winners of each category competing to be the overall champion. In addition, for the first time the consumer will also be able to cast their votes to select the winner of the Public Award. This year’s competition has two new categories – ‘Save the Planet’ and ‘Most Innovative’. The Save the Planet Award will go to a pack that can demonstrate that it has reduced its environmental impact. This may be a pack that has moved from a non-sustainable material, such as plastic, to cartonboard or could be an example of clever re-engineering to reduce the amount of packaging used. The Most Innovative Award will recognise where a new approach is being taken or where the design provides a particular technical challenge for the carton converter.
