Organised by DuPont and now sponsored by Dow, 2018 DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation has been recently announced for entries.
This is the is the longest running, independently judged packaging award that seeks to recognize innovations in packaging design, materials, technology and processes across the entire packaging value chain.
Inaugurated in 1986, the DuPont Packaging Awards program is recognized globally as the leading packaging awards program.
There is a three categories:
• Technological Advancement;
• Responsible Packaging;
• Enhanced User Experience.
Innovation takes many forms. It can be a container that blends rigid and flexible packaging for a myriad of possibilities or a medical package that plays a vital role in surgery preparation. Or, it may even be a squeezable mascara tube that ends product dispensing frustrations. But one thing is consistent…game-changing innovation takes hard work. Determination. Dedication. And in the packaging industry, it takes a strong passion for science.
Only commercial products, technologies and processes are eligible. Entries must be commercially available in the market. Remember, the entry does not need to contain a DuPont or Dow material or technology.
