2019 Packaging Innovation Awards by Dow

Dow has launched its call for entries for the 2019 Packaging Innovation Awards, continuing the tradition started by DuPont 31 years ago.

The 2019 Packaging Innovation Awards honor innovations in packaging design, materials, technology, and processes across the entire packaging value chain. Originated by DuPont, the tradition of excellence is now continued by Dow as brand owners, retailers, packaging designers, converters, and technology providers around the world are welcomed to enter and be recognized.

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.

Entry in the competition is free, and applicants are not required to use Dow or DuPont materials in their products. All entries must be commercial products that have been on the market for more than one year beginning in 2015 or later.

Last year’s program featured over 200 entries from companies in more than 30 countries, and it resulted in nine Diamond Finalist winners, eight Gold Award winners and 11 Silver Award winners, in addition to the best-in-class Diamond Award winner.
