SPRINGFIELD, MA | The Paperboard Packaging Council invites converters to take their best cartons off the shelf and into the spotlight to vie for the industry-best awards for superior package design in the association’s annual National Paperboard Packaging Competition.
The competition is said to gain recognition for the association’s members during their past year’s work. Association president Ben Markens explains, “More than that, it’s an opportunity to celebrate the innovation, sustainability, creativity, and functionality of paperboard and our industry.”
All entries compete for the Paperboard Package of the Year, and entrants can choose to have their entry compete for the Innovation Award, recognizing outstanding design based on processing and structural integrity, and the Eco Award, celebrating sustainable uses of paperboard as an original or replacement substrate.
Entry deadline is Friday, December 11. Entry forms and complete competition details are available at www.ppcnet.org/cc. Winners will be announced at PPC’s Outlook & Strategies conference on March 29—31, 2010, at the Westin Hotel in Cincinnati, OH.
