The International Pro Carton Young Designers Award is currently open for entries in its competition for 2016.
The Award aims to discover new, as yet unrealised design solutions and ideas by students throughout Europe relating to the use of carton.
The finalists and their immediate instructors will be invited to Antibes, France, for the award gala on 15 September 2016 and the winners will be spending a week of professional training at a well-known packaging design agency.
Also, every entry has the chance to win an iPad Air during the Social Award, an online voting campaign on the competition website. An additional iPad Air is given to one of the voters during the campaign.
The competition is open to all European design students, as long as they have not yet been commercially produced.
Entries are possible in two categories:
- Creative Cartonboard Packaging
- Creative Cartonboard Ideas
In each category awards will go to the winner and the two runners-up.
The first Pro Carton Design Award took place in 2002. Starting in Spain and Belgium, other national design awards soon followed in another ten European countries. 2004 saw the first European competition.
