KASAD is a member of ECMA European Carton Makers Association, which is based in Nederlands. ECMA represents over 80% of European carton market. ECMA’s partner associaton Pro Carton holds a contest every year called “Pro Carton Young Designers Award” for industrial design students from universities. It is one of the most prestigious contests in the world, and the awards find their owners in ECMA Congress, which is held in a different country every year. Pro Carton supports countries if they want to hold these awards in a national level. The projects which apply to Pro Carton contest gets scored by Pro Carton jury, and the nation’s winners get announced seperately.

El Presidente de KASAD, Alican Duran, habló sobre el concurso y la ceremonia;

“212 students from 12 universities have entered to the Pro Carton contest. With the assesment of the jury, 4 students have earned equal awards in 3 different categories. So, in a way, our contest had 4 winners. Other than that, 6 projects have earned honorable mentions. We congratulate the students who have earned prizes with their great projects. Also, we want to thank all the students and their teachers, who have been coaching them through the contest for their hard work in these hard times due to the pandemic. Also, we want to thank to Head of Industrial Design Department at Istanbul Medipol University, Dr. Ersin Alaca for his valuable presentations, and we thank Kartonsan and everybody that have supported our contest.”  “Pro Carton – KASAD Young Designers Award’22” ceremony is a very important event for us. Without design, it is impossible for any sector to sustain and improve, and this applies to the folding carton sector as well. Because of this, it is very important for us that the future designers are showing interest to our sector. With this contest, it has been possible for our young designers to show to an international platform their activity and their hard and high-quality work, which is of great value to our country’s future.”

Alican Durán, que también es vicepresidente de la ECMA, also have given information about Pro Carton Young Designers Award’21. “830 attendees from 103 universities in 24 countries have entered to the Pro Carton contest. 212 attendees from 12 universities that attended are from Turkey.
