WorldStar Packaging Awards 2016 open for entries

WPO (World Packaging Organization) announced that the entries for WorldStar Packaging Awards 2015 will be open to 18th September 2015.

Considered the most important global packaging award, the WorldStar is based on the judges' consensus that a pack is superior in its own right and better in its class, in execution, or innovation by comparison. The judges consider the following criteria: protection and preservation of contents; ease of handling, filling, opening and closing; adequacy of information; sales appeal; graphic design; quality of production; economy of material and cost reduction; environment; ingenuity of construction; and adaption to local conditions (production, materials, market).  

Winners of a WorldStar are also eligible to participate in three special categories: Sustainable Packaging Award, Marketing Award and President´s Award.  

WorldStar Awards are presented only for packages that have already won recognition in either a regional or national competition in 2014 - 2015, normally organized by an Association, member of WPO.

Details about qualifying competitions to enter can be found at  

The entry fee is €650 for the first entry; the fee for any additional packs is €500 each.
