The German Packaging Institute e. V. (DVI) has opened the application period for the German Packaging Award 2022. The prestigious prize will be awarded in September at FACHPACK.
Companies, organizations, and individuals with innovative ideas and products can apply until May 15, 2022, and the institute will award the prize across all materials in ten categories. These include design and finishing, presentation of goods, cost-effectiveness and sustainability, logistics and material flow, packaging machine, and digitalization. “Particularly groundbreaking innovations” are additionally honored with the Gold Award. Finally, young people in school, studying, or undergoing training will be honored with a special award. The awards will be presented on September 27, 2022, at FACHPACK in Nuremberg.
“The packaging industry is not only relevant to the system, but also, above all, highly innovative,” says Dr. Bettina Horenburg, Director Corporate Communications of the Siegwerk Group, dvi board member and person overall responsible for the German Packaging Award. “With its solutions, it ensures hygiene, health, product protection, and security of supply for people and the economy. In addition, more and more packaging is pioneering in sustainability and the circular economy. I am convinced that the German Packaging Award will once again convincingly showcase the performance of our industry on the big stage this year and I am already looking forward to the award ceremony on the first day of Fachpack 2022.”
The jury consists of a diverse panel of experts from business, research, academia, and the media. It examines all entries at a two-day meeting at the premises of premium partner IGEPA group according to fixed, category-specific criteria, which can be found on the website of the German Packaging Institute.
“The German Packaging Award is a true, transparent showcase of achievement. By winning a packaging award or the even more exclusive Gold Award, companies put a strong exclamation mark on their achievements. They demonstrate their outstanding innovative strength and win tangible arguments in their communications with customers, consumers, partners, future employees, and their own team,” emphasizes Dr. Horenburg.
The innovations and new solutions can be submitted via an online form on the homepage of the German Packaging Award at verpackung.org. Information on how to register is also available there.
