Title The Final Countdown
Text At the ECMA Congress in September in Istanbul, Pro Carton took the opportunity to announce the finalists in each of the categories in the 2009 Carton Award Competition.

For the first time in the 13 year history of these awards, a video was produced that not only showed all the finalists but also gave an insight into the judging process itself that took place earlier in the year. It is now possible to look at these videos, category by category, and see both the judging process and also images of the finalists. In the Shelf Ready and Display category and the Volume market category, no finalists were selected, just the winners.

The winners in each category plus the announcement of the winners of the Sustainability award, the Most Innovative Award and the Carton of the Year will be made at the Night of Packaging which will be held during the Pro Carton International Congress in Dusseldorf on 25th and 26th November.
