Strong Field of Participants
“Once again in 2016 we have been delighted by an extremely strong field,” says Dr. Bettina Horenburg, dvi Board Member and person in charge of the German Packaging Award. “Our jury, hailing from business, research, education and the media had a demanding job given the range and generally high quality of the participants. In the end, a total of 35 outstanding solutions were chosen according to the respective criteria in each of the 10 competition categories.” The variety of innovations is also reflected in the materials used. Plastic, glass, corrugated cardboard, paper, cardboard, tin, aluminium and composite materials were used. The winners come from the fields of design and finishing (5), functionality and convenience (9), merchandising (4), economy (2), sustainability (4), security (1), logistics and material handling (2), new material (1) and packaging machines (3). Four awards were given in a separate category to young talent for their fresh, functional ideas.
The German Packaging Award is an international industry and material-spanning award, held under the auspices of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy. With this award, the German Packaging Institute (dvi) annually awards innovative and creative packaging ideas from seemingly small but groundbreaking details right up to fundamental innovations.
