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!
For twenty years the Young Package competition has been giving hundreds of students from all over the world an annual opportunity to present their original ideas.
