DuPont Packaging has announced the call for entries in the 24th DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation.
“Needs for improved sustainability and cost/waste reduction are the key drivers for packaging innovation today,” said Shanna Moore, Global Director of Sustainability, DuPont Packaging. “We look forward to entries that demonstrate excellence in addressing these issues. In order to share learnings about how companies are innovating in response to these needs, we will once again conduct a global online event featuring our winners, who also will be honored in a celebration event with senior DuPont executives.”
The prestigious international jury panel for the DuPont Awards will be headed by Brian Wagner, Vice President, PTIS (a HAVI Global Solutions Direct Company). Entries will be evaluated for excellence in packaging innovation, sustainability, and cost/waste reduction. Entry forms and guidelines are available at www.packaging.dupont.com. The deadline for entries is Feb. 24, 2012.
Packaging designers, converters, consumer goods producers, retailers, and equipment manufacturers from around the world are encouraged to enter their new packaging developments. 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 2012.
