Young Package is a competition in packaging design and focuses on packages made of paper. It is meant for young designers of up to 30 years of age. The competition was founded to invite students and creative people, and challenge them to create designs of corrugated and smooth cardboard or other paper materials widely used in packaging design.
Theme for 2015: HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
Package something extraordinary, whatever you like! Or turn a common thing into a small present, an interesting anniversary artefact, a birthday package that arouses desire. Consider for instance, what the jubilee edition of your favourite beverage, perfume or chocolate could look like. Show us how you imagine an original and limited edition package for a beloved tea or technological toy. Design an annual collection, festive wrapper, original wrapping paper or box for any gift.
Be original, be innovative and surprise us!
The competition jury will mainly assess: innovativeness and creativity; package ergonomics; functionality; easy manipulation ( packages should be easily open by elder people or children as well ) environmental aspects; shape, and originality of the idea; constructional imaginativeness; quality presentation. Participants will submit their entries in the form of a full-scale functional model. This means that it must be a functional mock-up; if it is designed to open, it must open. The model must be of high quality, with regard to potential representational and exhibition purposes.
