Following last year’s triumph, Pro Carton’s Student Video Award returns in 2023 inviting young filmmakers to put cartonboard in the leading role.
Entries are now open for young filmmakers to submit their creations promoting the benefits of folding cartons or cartonboard packaging. The Pro Carton Student Video Award 2023 invites students across Europe to combine their love for film with the most economically and ecologically balanced packaging medium: cartonboard. The competition is open to students enrolled at a European school/college, with the winner taking away the €5,000 prize fund, which will be announced at an exclusive awards ceremony in Seville, Spain.
For the fourth consecutive year, Pro Carton will invite students to promote or explain one or more of the benefits of cartons (or cartonboard) in a creative way. The awards encourage the next generation of talent to showcase their video making and editing skills alongside their passion for sustainability.
Open for entries now, students interested in taking part in the free-to-enter competition can submit their film masterpieces individually or in a group of up to four before June 23, 2023. The video should be entertaining, creative and communicative, and must be between 30 seconds and two minutes in length. Entrants are encouraged to use the open brief to create any style of video they wish, to demonstrate the attractiveness of cartonboard packaging.
Pro Carton invites teachers, lecturers, and professors to include the Pro Carton Student Video Award as a course project for their students. Complementary cartonboard sheets and online classes with industry experts are available to help students’ ideas come to life. The award is of particular interest to those studying business, marketing and communications, media, filmmaking, audio-visual or similar courses.
On top of the monetary €5,000 prize for the winning entry, the Public Award winner will receive the latest GoPro HERO and accessories bundle. All winners will be invited to the official awards ceremony, taking place on 21st September in Seville, Spain, at the annual ECMA Congress. The Pro Carton Student Video Award’s ceremony will take place alongside Pro Carton’s other renown awards, the European Carton Excellence Awards and Pro Carton Young Designers Award.
