The jubilee 25th year of The Model Young Package 2020 competition brings up a pressing issue – Personal Care in our globalised world.
Designers from all around the world are invited to create a modern packaging that is sustainable and contributes to improving the quality of life at the same time.
The world’s largest contest of its type is organized by Czechdesign for Model Group and is awarded 6,200 Euro prizes in total. Moreover, it allows participants to compare their designs in international competition and get an appraisal from distinguished industry experts.
Personal Care Is Everybody’s Business Now
This year, the designers’ task is to design packaging for personal care products that will make our lives better and heal the ailments of today’s world. Healthier, more beautiful, happier and responsible – that’s the model man of today who inevitably needs a lot of products and leaves a lot of packaging behind. All the things that we eat and drink every day, apply to our bodies, or simply use should improve our lives. All you have to do is choose either the path of natural products or the latest scientific knowledge. These products enter our life to make it better. Therefore, they should be better.
That’s the designers’ challenge – to pack creatively and responsibly cosmetics, nutritional supplements (vitamins, teas), medical supplies, medicines or hygiene items of any kind.
(Almost) Everyone Can Win
The Model Young Package contest has two categories. Students of secondary and tertiary professional schools can apply for the High Schools category. The second category is for university students and designers of any age.
Participants register using the online registration form at young-package.com and then send their work by post to the address of the organizer Czechdesign.
