The Pro Carton Student Video Award returns for its third year

The Pro Carton Student Video Award – a competition where students are tasked with creating a video about the benefits of cartonboard – is open for entries.

Now in its third year, European students in full-time education are encouraged to get creative and demonstrate their passion for the most ecologically balanced packaging medium. The awards are free to enter, with entries closing on 26 June 2022, and the best entry taking home €5,000 for their winning creation. A new award for 2022, which will be determined by votes from the public, will see one winner take home a GoPro HERO10 plus accessories bundle. Both prizes are sponsored by Pro Carton member RDM Group.

Students from 38 universities across 17 European countries participated in last year’s edition, over twice as many compared to the inaugural award in 2020, demonstrating a growing enthusiasm and awareness amongst young people of the merits of cartons.

The video must be between 30 secs and two minutes in length, leaving the rest of the brief open to interpretation, allowing for a wide scope of imaginative entries.

Winfried Mühling, General Manager, Pro Carton, said, “It fills me with great excitement to know that many talented students across Europe are currently creating their videos. It was incredible to see how well received the awards were across Europe last year, with almost twice as many entrants as the previous year, despite the difficulties induced by the pandemic.”
