About the competition
Don’t let packages end up in the trash, find their additional function! Packaging design has a special position not only in design, marketing and transport, but also in how it affects the environment. Paper waste makes up about 25% of household waste and it cannot be recycled indefinitely. Let’s cut down the proportion of non-recyclable packaging waste, and let’s think about how to create a package with multiple uses. 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.
