Public voting opens for Pro Carton’s Young Designers Award
Public voting is now officially open for the Pro Carton Young Designers Award which is run by the European Association of Carton and Cartonboard Manufacturers. The winners of Europe’s leading annual packaging design competition for young talent will be announced during an online virtual celebration on 7 October 2020.
Despite the global coronavirus pandemic, 2020 proved to be another record year for the Pro Carton Young Designers Award. The number of entries reportedly increased by almost 20% year on year, with well over 550 cartonboard designs submitted from 85 schools and universities in 25 different countries across Europe.
Tony Hitchin, general manager of Pro Carton said: “The judges have shortlisted the designs they want to go through to the public vote, and so now it’s left to the people to decide which creative young designer is the worthy winner!”
“We are incredibly pleased with the volume as well as the standard of entries submitted; 2020 has proven to be the most successful year yet, despite difficulties around the global crisis. The Pro Carton Young Designers Award has proven itself again to be a fantastic platform to reach the next generation of designers, not only teaching the importance of using recyclable packaging materials such as cartonboard, but also inspiring a sustainable ethos.”
