Do you have what it takes to create a short film that presents the environmental credentials of cartonboard to consumers?

Why not put your creativity to the test by entering the Pro Carton Student Video Award 2024!

The filmmaking competition is free to enter and is open to any student enrolled at a European school, college or university. We encourage teachers to make the award a course project and we are able to support you throughout the process with presentations and cartonboard material – at no cost.

Produce a short video of up to two minutes in length, that demonstrates or promotes the benefits of printed folding cartons or cartonboard to a consumer audience.

You can use any products that are readily available from supermarkets as props – such as cereal boxes, confectionery products, frozen foods and medicines, or you can create an animated video with illustrations – the choice is yours.

All that we ask is that you bring our material to life in an interesting and creative way!

Students studying film, videography, photography, multimedia, or even those who simply have a love of filmmaking are invited to join the compeition. Entry is simple. Simply follow the instructions, and submit your video file online by the deadline date.

The finalists and their teachers will be invited to the Pro Carton and European Carton Makers Association (ECMA) Awards Gala in September 2024, which will be held in Berlin, where you can meet people from across the cartonboard packaging industry – including those responsible for marketing their businesses.

In addition to taking home a trophy and certificate, the winners will take home a cash prize:

Winner: €4,000
Highly Commended: €1,000
Public Award: €1,000
