FPA Student Competition now accepting entries

The Flexible Packaging Association has announce its 2019 Student Flexible Packaging Design Challenge Call for Entries.

 

In its 15th year, the FPA Student Flexible Packaging Design Challenge has become a prestigious competition within the flexible packaging industry.

 

The Student Design Challenge honors flexible packaging solutions developed by students. Flexible packaging is used to package a wide variety of items. From retail food to medical and pharmaceutical products, the packaging possibilities are endless. The only limit is imagination!

 

The “challenge” for students is to develop a flexible package solution that addresses a packaging issue, such as consumer convenience or the protection of food. The package should advance the use of flexible packaging; make an improvement over an existing flexible package; convert a non-flexible package into a flexible package; or package a product that is not currently available in flexible packaging.

 

Students are asked to submit a concept outline prior to the actual development of the flexible packaging prototype/bench sample. The concept outline will be evaluated and when approved, students may begin development of the package prototype/bench sample. Students may work on the design in conjunction with their packaging schools. FPA members may be available as mentors to students advancing to the flexible packaging prototype/bench sample development round.

 

The deadline to submit a concept outline is September 21, 2018. The student or team of students who develops the first place winning entry will receive $1,000, and the second place winning entry will receive $500.
