International Competition of Packaging Design

2016: 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. Therefore, we have chosen a topic that can help reduce the amount of packaging waste and at the same time provide an additional use for consumers - PACKAGE UNLIMITED. Let's cut down the proportion of non-recyclable packaging waste, and let's think about how to create a package with multiple uses.

We are looking for imaginative, multi-functional and detailed packages that can be used for several purposes.

Entries may either be sent by March 25, 2016 or delivered personally on March 29, 2016, from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. to the address CZECHDESIGN/GALLERY, Vojtěšská 3, Praha 1, Czech Republic.

Create an innovative package and show how packaging doesn’t have to end up in the trash.

Think of a package that blooms after use, a special pencil case, or a package that becomes part of the product after opening. Create an imaginative and thoughtful package for your favourite product, which could be used for better handling of the product after unpacking, or be used for decoration. Discover the possibilities of paper! Create a package so graphically eye-catching, that nobody would want to throw it away. Take time exploring design solutions and finding additional packaging functions!
