The 8th edition of the Pentawards, a global competition devoted exclusively to packaging design, is open for entries from April 14 to May 23. Packaging designers, brand owners and packaging suppliers from the world over are invited to enter their best creations in 50 categories divided into five sectors: food, beverages, body, other markets and luxury.
An international jury composed of 12 professionals from packaging design and marketing and its chairman will bestow the Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum Pentawards. The best of the show will be crowned with the Diamond Pentaward. In addition, organizers say that companies such as Esko, Luxepack and Sleever International, all official sponsors of the Pentawards, will each handover a special prize.
All winning designs will be published in the third volume of The Package Design Book, to be released in November 2014. The Pentawards ceremony will be presented on October 9 in Tokyo.
There will be no extension of the registration deadline; May 23 is the last day to submit entries. Registration is available online at www.pentawards.org.
