UPM Raflatac, headquartered in Tampere, Finland, has launched a label design competition in China. The Label Design Awards 2007 encourages Chinese designers to revolutionize the way labels are designed.

The invitational contest is open to professional designers and design students attending China’s top 100 design schools. A jury will evaluate the entries and select winners from the student and professional categories. The results will be made public in March at
