|Pro Carton/ECMA Award 2013 – the finalists!
|The 17. Pro Carton/ECMA Award has been an outstanding success: The interest in new ideas in the fields of cartonboard and cartons has increased significantly, as indicated by the growing number of entries: nearly a third of companies have participated for the first time – we have never had that many newcomers for our Award. On 19 September, the award winners will be presented at the ECMA Congress in Dubrovnik. Who are your favourites?

|A major contributing factor to the success of the Award has been the excellent work by the jury. For Pro Carton it is important that all partners in the Packaging Supply Chain are represented on the jury: the entries must be judged by experts who take sustainable decisions in practice.
As previously, Satkar Gidda from SiebertHead chaired the jury. His forte is design, and he is ably supported by representatives of large brands and a renowned retailer. Wilfried Duivenvoorden from Unilever and Anne Harding from Marks & Spencer joined the jury for the first time, for Stan Akkermans from Mars it was his second time. And as always, Peter Klein Sprokkelhorst put the technical intricacies of the entries into perspective.
Here is an overview of the finalists in the eight main categories, from which the category winners an the "Carton of the Year" and the Awards "Most Innovative" and "Sustainability" will be picked. Images and brief information on all finalists is available at www.procartonecmaaward.com:

Most impressive this year, were the numerous coherent concepts for the Point of Sale. Chairman of the jury, Satkar Gidda: "We saw total integrated thinking such as carrying the product characteristics through onto the packaging which serves perfectly to help communicate the brand values and brand qualities. It demonstrated thinking beyond just packaging of a product. It’s this level of holistic branding that really shows what cartons can do for brands."
A comprehensive PR and marketing package ensures that a host of European media will report on the award winners and finalists. The concept is rolled out at a European level, the tools are available to all award winners and finalists to support their own marketing. The award-winning packaging and the finalists be on tour again - as part of a road show to various trade fairs and events throughout Europe. In 2014 they will be presented at the Interpack.
