FPA Calls for Student Design Contest Entries

ANNAPOLIS, MD | The Flexible Packaging Association (FPA) announces a Call for Entries for the 2018 Student Flexible Packaging Design Challenge, now in its 14th year. The Challenge for students is to develop a flexible package solution that addresses a packaging issue, such as consumer convenience or the protection of food. The package should advance the use of flexible packaging; make an improvement over an existing flexible package; convert a non-flexible package into a flexible package; package a new product or package a product that is not currently available in flexible packaging.

Students are asked to submit a concept outline prior to the actual development of the flexible packaging prototype/bench sample. The concept outline will be evaluated, and when approved, students may begin development of the package prototype/bench sample. Students may work on the design in conjunction with their packaging schools. FPA members may be available as mentors to students, advancing to the flexible packaging prototype/bench sample development round.

The deadline to submit a concept outline is September 15, 2017. The student or team of students who develops the first place winning entry will receive $1,000, and the second place winning entry will receive $500.
