2016 DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation

DuPont has just opened entry for its 2016 Awards for Packaging Innovation program — an international, independently-judged competition that honors innovations in packaging design annually.

Open to brand owners, retailers, packaging designers, converters and technology providers around the world, the DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation honors innovations in packaging design, materials, technology and processes across the entire packaging value chain.

There are three award levels – Silver, Gold and Diamond. Winners are based on “excellence” in one, two or all three categories: Technological Advancement, Responsible Packaging and Enhanced User Experience.

Eligible for entry are innovations in the packaging supply which are commercially available in the market.

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.

Inaugurated in 1986, the DuPont Packaging Awards program is recognized globally as the leading packaging awards program.
