European Carton Excellence Award 2019: 28 Winners!

An incredible twenty eight winners were celebrated at the 2019 European Carton Excellence Award Gala Dinner held on 19th September in the awesome setting of The Limestone Heritage Park and Gardens in Malta, as part of the annual ECMA Congress. Carton of the Year 2019 went to “Gabrini In Love EDT” by Printpark and Metsä Board. The distinctive structural design gives the packaging a diamond shape and harmonises perfectly with the encrusted crystal jewels. The jury said: “The winning point is that the product, pack inner and pack outer work together brilliantly for the target market – young women who like a bit of “bling”.” You can find all 28 winning designs on the Pro Carton website well as photos and video interviews with the happy prize winners immediately after the award ceremony. The top awards were given for the best packs on both virgin fibre and recycled cartonboard as well as for the best entries in the Save the Planet and Innovation categories. This year Platinum and Gold Awards were also given to other outstanding packs that highlighted some of the most exciting developments in the carton market and showed many new ways to replace less sustainable packaging with cartonboard! It was a fantastic competition this year and many congratulations to all the winners and thanks to everyone who took part. We’re already looking forward to next year’s competition!
