Young Package 2010 – International Competition of Packaging Design

The international competition Young Package is for designers and this year also for creators of comics who have not reached 31 years of age.

You can win €750 in one of the two categories of the 15th annual competition: Package for Sweets or Comics. The first category relates to product packaging, the second offers a fresh look at what a package could be.

The competition was founded to invite students and creative people up to 30 years of age, and challenge them to create designs of corrugated and smooth cardboard as used in the sponsor’s packaging design.

Introduction

Since its foundation in 1996, the Young Package competition has achieved an international reputation and a distinctive position among competitions for young designers. This year brings a couple of significant changes. First, the image of the competition has changed and for its 15th anniversary the competition introduced a brand new web site. Secondly, the scope of the competition adds a novelty: in one of the two categories, it invites and challenges creative minds from art fields other than packaging design.

Young Package is held annually. Its founder, the Czech company Model Obaly is a leading package manufacturer and a great believer in supporting and challenging young creative talents.
