The Pro Carton Young Designers Award, one of Europe’s leading student competitions for packaging design, now is accepting entries for 2020!
Pro Carton Young Designers Award is organised (as a result of its overwhelming success in 2016) every year by Pro Carton, European Association of Carton and Cartonboard manufacturers. The Award plays a pioneering role in promoting sustainability, as it is the only design competition focusing exclusively on cartonboard design. Categories are:
• Creative Cartonboard Packaging: Eat & Drink: The focus lies on cartonboard as the most sustainable food and beverages packaging material and its recyclability. Give us a taste of great design!
• Creative Cartonboard Packaging: All other: This category focuses on using the most sustainable packaging material for non-food packaging. Everything needs packaging, have a look around yourself and get inspired!
• Creative Cartonboard Ideas: Think outside the box! Here’s a chance for you to put forward your cartonboard ideas outside of the packaging market.
• Save the Planet: Every minute a truck load of plastics is dumped in the ocean. Show us your ideas as to how cartonboard can reduce or replace plastic and help us save the planet!
• Newcomer’s Award: There will also be an award for the best entry submitted from a university that hasn’t won an award in the past. So if your university or school has not had a winner before, or maybe has never entered before, now’s the time to do so!
In addition to these five category winners, consumers will also have the opportunity to vote to select the winner of the Public Award.
Step 1: Create your design idea:
• must be three-dimensional, true to scale, regardless of their actual size and use

• be folded and possibly glued
Step 2: Online entry – promote your design:
• Take 3-5 photos of your design
