DuPont Packaging has announced the call for entries in the 25th DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation, the industry’s longest running, independently judged competition.
“Over the years, packaging innovations selected as winners of the DuPont Award have changed the way we live. In reaching the program’s 25th year, we would like to particularly recognize breakthroughs that reduce food waste, a pressing need globally. The program will retain its focus on innovation, sustainability, and cost/waste reduction,” said Shanna Moore, Global Director of Sustainability, DuPont Packaging & Industrial Polymers.
The international jury panel for the 25th DuPont Awards will be headed by Brian Wagner, Vice President, PTIS (a HAVI Global Solutions Direct Company). The global jury is being formed now and will be posted on the DuPont website. Entry forms and guidelines are available at www.packaging.dupont.com. The deadline for entries is Feb. 28, 2013.
Packaging designers, converters, consumer goods producers, retailers, and equipment manufacturers from around the world are encouraged to enter new packaging that has been commercialized since Jan. 1, 2011. There is no fee for entry and DuPont materials do not need to be in the packaging structure. In evaluating entries, jurors will consider excellence in one or more of these areas: innovation, sustainability, and cost/waste reduction. Winners will be announced in May 2013
