“We are excited to be able to spotlight breakthrough technologies and cutting-edge design through the Innovation Awards,” said Christelle Anya, show director, ADF&PCD. “We encourage brands to take advantage of this opportunity to be recognized by their peers.”
The brand-focused awards are designed to showcase Packaging and Dispensing Innovations launched on the market between June 1, 2016 and June 1, 2017, and recognize outstanding achievements in technological and creative innovations in aerosol, dispensing, personal care and cosmetic packaging.
An independent jury of packaging experts from leading brands, universities, organizations as well as the media will oversee the selection process during a private meeting which will be held at Pratt Institute’s Manhattan campus.
Entries will be judged on the following criteria: opening of a new market; unique design (shape and decoration); ergonomy, gesture, new service; innovation: technical, transformation, process; environment / sustainability / eco-conception; and/or formulation / spray.
