Pro Carton Awards return to inspire the next generation of packaging enthusiasts

Entries for the 2024 Pro Carton Young Designers Award (PCYDA) and Pro Carton Student Video Award (PCSVA) are officially open.

Helping to promote sustainable packaging innovation across Europe, the PCYDA and the PCSVA celebrate the up-and-coming talents across sustainable packaging design and filmmaking. Both competitions, which are free to enter, encourage students to learn about the packaging industry, while simultaneously offering them the chance to enhance their creative skills.

The Pro Carton Young Designers Award continues to be a prestigious platform for talented, young designers to showcase their skills and make their mark in the sustainable packaging industry. This award offers students the chance to pioneer and showcase their innovative ideas across three categories: Creative Cartonboard Packaging: Food & Drink, Creative Cartonboard Packaging: All Other and the Sustainability Award. This competition provides students with the opportunity to gain learning experience outside the classroom,, build networks, create job opportunities, and win exciting prizes.

The Pro Carton Student Video Award invites young aspiring videographers to produce compelling videos that highlight the versatility, sustainability, and innovation of cartonboard packaging. This award allows students to explain the benefits of cartonboard in everyday life in a unique and captivating way, with the best entries being congratulated with cash prizes.

Winfried Mühling, Director of Marketing & Communications, Pro Carton commented, “Both the Pro Carton Young Designers Award and the Pro Carton Student Video Award offer a fantastic opportunity for the future generation of packaging enthusiasts to showcase their talent and of course, the versatility of cartonboard. We will further extend the learning opportunity to allow the students a professional sales pitch of their respective projects. It is same time an opportunity for the industry to demonstrate exciting job opportunities for young graduates. We look forward to once again celebrating the creative and inspiring entries that are submitted for 2024.”
