Young Package 2011 – International Competition of Packaging Design

Young Package 2011, the international competition of packaging design is accepting entries for its 16th edition. The challenge is to create a package for your national product.

The 16th annual international competition aimed at students and designers up to 30 years of age from the whole world comes with two new topics. The first prize has increased to €1000 in each category!

Since its foundation in 1996, the Young Package competition has achieved an international reputation and a distinctive position among competitions for young designers.

Objective

The competition is divided into two categories.

  • Product Package: the first is more closely linked with industrial practice, with the theme aimed at either a product, or a group of products. The goal however is not to limit the participants by the package production process, but to find new ways, new ideas and possibilities.
  • Different View: the second category offers a different angle of looking at package, working freely with the package theme – the box.

You can read more information about the topics of Young Package 2011 on the official website.
