The National Paperboard Packaging Competition, sponsored by the Paperboard Packaging Council, is now in its 68th year of honoring the best in paperboard packaging. This year, 31 PPC members submitted 117 packages for awards consideration in the overall competition.
Jury members evaluated package samples and their accompanying write-ups to select this year’s award winners. Each entry was eligible to receive a total of 30 points. The entry with the highest point total in each category was awarded the top prize in each category. A grand prize of Paperboard Package of the Year was given to the best overall package in the entire competition. For the first time in the competition’s history, the judges also decided to award a special Judges’ Award, to honor an exceptional example of paperboard packaging that was neither a folding carton nor a rigid box.
