The largest packaging design competition Model Young Package announces new theme “Food Is…” for 2022 and it concerns all about food packaging!
This competition is focused on paper products. Prototypes of packaging made of corrugated and solid cardboard and other paper materials are accepted.
Compare your packaging design prototype in the international competition and have a chance at winning a financial reward of 7,300 EUR in total. Moreover, the ultimate winner will be rewarded with the great opportunity in the form of a three-week honoured internship at an Innovation Centre of Model Group.
In our point of view, it is a topic that appeals to everyone. Because food has always been a basic and universal human need. Indeed, food stands for much more than satisfying hunger. Food Is… ritual, art, inspiration. Food Is… pleasure, relaxation, health, joy, passion, love, addiction. Food is part of our everyday lives and the appropriate packaging is able to enhance the experience.
Packaging nowadays no longer just protects an object, but often tells a story that captures people’s interest as well as emotions. It might be a story regarding food quality, origin, or a story about a specific food preparation. Packaging owns the strength to elevate food to a much higher level, packaging entertains, surprises, brings us out of our stereotypes and back to the present. Just like the food itself, packaging must meet strict requirements in terms of quality, eco-friendliness, and utility.
Model Young Package is ready to see your food packaging design. Are you ready too?

The competition is open to participants from all over the world.
