The 2018 30th Awards for Packaging Innovation continues the DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation program established in 1986, the industry's longest running independently judged awards program. Dow carries on the tradition of assembling an independent panel of international packaging judges from a great variety of disciplines, to provide the awards with a global perspective across design, engineering, retail, converting and academia.
"In its 30th year, the Awards for Packaging Innovation celebrate innovation and collaboration in packaging throughout the entire value chain," says Diego Donoso, business president for Dow Packaging & Specialty Plastics. "The awards recognize companies that promote technological advancement, enhance customer product experiences and demonstrate responsible packaging and winning products demonstrate how they truly have the power to change lives."
Entry is free and applicants are not required to use Dow or DuPont materials in the products they enter. As in previous years, all of the products in the 2018 30th Awards for Packaging Innovation must be commercially available when they are entered. This year, applicants can utilize a streamlined entry process with a simplified online form.
