PPC Taking Entries for Packaging Design Competition

Sept. 9, 2009 - The Paperboard Packaging Council (PPC) is inviting converters to take their best cartons off the shelf and into the spotlight and compete for the industry-best awards for superior package design as part of the PPC’s (PPC) 67th annual National Paperboard Packaging Competition.

“This competition gives our members the chance to gain recognition for their best work from the past year. But, more than that, it’s an opportunity to celebrate the innovation, sustainability, creativity, and functionality of paperboard and our industry,” said Ben Markens, president of PPC. “It’s a chance to put the best of paperboard packaging on display.”

Each entry in this year’s competition has the opportunity to compete in three categories. All entries will compete for the Paperboard Package of the Year. Entrants can also choose to have their package compete for the Innovation Award, recognizing outstanding design based on processing and structural integrity, and the Eco Award, celebrating sustainable uses of paperboard as an original or replacement substrate.

The entry deadline is Friday, Dec. 11. Entry forms and complete competition details are available at www.ppcnet.org/cc.

Winners will be announced at PPC’s Outlook & Strategies conference, March 29 - 31, 2010, in Cincinnati.


Now in its 80th year, the Paperboard Packaging Council (PPC) is the leading industry association serving suppliers and converters of all forms of paperboard packaging. PPC works to grow, promote, and protect the paperboard packaging industry while providing its members with resources and tools to compete effectively and successfully in the marketplace.
