An Elite Panel of Judges
An elite panel of judges, including Beauty Packaging’s publisher, Jay Gorga, critiqued all the submissions — voting to choose the winners, across numerous categories. Judges included top packaging executives from various industries and brands.
There were also five packaging student judges that voted to name Ellis Brooklyn–Marvelous Massage & Body Oil by SeaCliff Beauty as the Student’s Choice winner.
Peter Gould, co-committee Chair, of the NJPEC POY, says, “All the judges were impressed with the wide range of packaging ingenuity and brand impact displayed in this year’s competition. We look forward to awards night, when the entire industry comes together to recognize and celebrate this year’s incredible achievements in packaging, design, and engineering.”
