Select this year’s winning Young Designers
Voting is also open for Europe’s leading annual young talent competition for packaging design, Pro Carton’s Young Designers Award (PCYDA), which calls on students to design and create creative cartonboard concepts in four categories: Food & Drink, All Other, Creative Cartonboard Ideas and Sustainability.
This year’s PCYDA saw more than 830 entries from over 100 universities and colleges across Europe – breaking the 2021 record. Judges were hugely impressed with the creativity and innovation of the entries, as well as the professional presentation of the videos that were submitted to accompany each design. The best 25 designs are now open for the public to choose their favourite, and can be found on the Pro Carton website here.
Voting for both the European Carton Excellence Awards and Pro Carton Young Designers Award is now open on the Pro Carton website. For both awards, members of the public can vote once per entry, with three votes available in total. Voting closes on Friday, 26 August. The winners will be announced at an Awards Gala on 15 September in Krakow, Poland.
Commenting on the quality of this year’s entries, Winfried Muehling, General Manager of Pro Carton said:
“I was truly impressed with the quality of the entries for the European Carton Excellence Award and the Pro Carton Young Designers Award! So many entries scored highly across the awards criteria; from appearance and creativity to protection and authenticity. We’d love the general public to help us decide the winner of the public vote by selecting their favourite and look forward to announcing the winning entrants this September!”
