Dow Awards to recognise best innovations in commercial packaging
The Dow Chemical Company has announced the call for entries for the 2018 30th Awards for Packaging Innovation – an independently judged, globally recognised programme.
The 2018 30th Awards for Packaging Innovation continues the DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation programme, which was established back in 1986, making it the industry’s longest running independently judged awards programme. Dow carries on the tradition of assembling an independent panel of leading international packaging judges from a great variety of disciplines, to provide the awards with a global perspective across design, engineering, retail, converting, and academia.
“The Awards for Packaging Innovation celebrate innovation and collaboration in packaging throughout the entire value chain,” said Diego Donoso, Business President for Dow Packaging & Specialty Plastics. “The awards recognise companies that promote technological advancement, enhance customer product experiences, and demonstrate responsible packaging.”
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 utilise a streamlined entry process with a simplified online form to complete, submit, and track entries, as well as upload accompanying images and videos.
Entries will be accepted up until 12th April 2018, with all necessary forms and information available at:
