The 2017 competition entries demonstrated a high level of creativity as well as a strong understanding of the mechanical properties of flexible packaging materials and manufacturing processes. While every winning entry was designed for a different product, they each found an ingenious way to apply flexible packaging to satisfy the growing consumer demand for convenient, easy-to-use packaging.
FPA’s annual Achievement Awards competition recognizes innovative flexible packaging from across its membership. The industry also believes it is important to encourage and recognize students who are working to become the next generation of packaging designers. For the 2017 competition, FPA received 39 concept outlines from some of the top packaging design programs across the United States. From the concept outlines submitted, 13 were selected to continue to the development phase.
