Champions were announced for the 2015 Crescent and Stars of Packaging Competition, the award ceremony of which has been postponed to a future date in 2015 because o f the terrorism actions taking place in the Eastern and South-eastern regions and due to respect for the memories of our martyrs that struck us with grief. Of this year's 169 packages in the competition, whose award ceremony will later be announced by ASD, 16 were granted ‘Gold', 20 ‘Silver', 18 ‘Bronze Awards'. 34 packages in various categories received ‘Competency Awards'. 3 packages selected in cooperation with Turkish Standards Institute (TSE) from among the ‘Gold Award' winners won the ‘Gold Packaging Award'.

This year Crescent and Stars of Packaging Competition, where packaging manufactures, brand owners and designers participated with their commercialised packages, had the highest number of entries in Food, Graphic Design and Beverages categories. Considered to be one of the most valuable awards in Turkey, the competition had more than 50 percent of the applications from food, graphic design and beverage sectors. In the Industrial & Transportation packages category, there were about 3 times more entries as compared to the previous year. This year the highest number of applications was in the graphic design category with 39 packages.

The jury, after doing a one-by-one assessment of the packages that entered the competition in the branches of Industrial and Transportation, Flexible, Health and Cosmetics Products & Pharmaceuticals, Packaging materials, Presentation and Protection Products, Non-Food Packaging identified the champions of 2015 through a difficult process. This year's ‘Gold Packaging Award' was granted to 3 products from Food and Exposition, Presentation and Storage Product at Points of Sale category. A packaging from Switzerland was also granted an award in this year's competition where entries from foreign countries were accepted for the first time.

ASD Chairman of Board Sadettin Korkut gave the following information about the results of this year's competition: "One of the primary targets of ASD is to bring our sector to a more competitive position in international markets. Our Crescent and Stars of Packaging Competition, which is now an international brand, was opened to foreign countries this year. With the Crescent and Stars of Packaging Competition having gained an international nature, Turkey now will select World Crescent and Stars of Packaging. When the number of entries from foreign countries in our competition increases in the future, Turkey is expected to become a global and not only a regional centre of attraction in packaging sector.”

Indicating that the finalists who were granted at least Competency 2015 Award in the Competition will be entitled to participate in the WorldStar Competition organised by the World Packaging Organisation and the AsiaStar Competition organised by Asia Packaging Federation, Korkut said, "We will demonstrate the current position of Turkish packaging sector to the whole world in these international competitions which are supported by the member countries of these organisations and in which ASD has been giving votes as the jury member.”

Asia's Giant Packaging Companies Meet in Istanbul

Stating that Turkish Packaging Industry has one further reason to feel pride, ASD Chairman Korkut reminded that AsiaStar 2015 organisation will be made by ASD and Istanbul will be hosting the packaging sector representatives from Asia. Emphasising that the sector has been exporting packaging to 183 countries in the world, including the EU members, Sadettin Korkut continued: "We are very happy to be rewarding the successful works of Turkish companies in this field and giving support to their global recognition. We are planning to bring our sector to a more competitive position in the international market. With the Crescent and Stars of Packaging Competition which gained an international nature this year, Turkey will now select World Crescent and Stars of Packaging. We are expecting to have greater participation from foreign countries in the future. We intend to make Turkey a global and not only a regional centre of attraction in the packaging sector.”
