Lifetime Achievement Award

The Lifetime Achievement Packaging Award is a new initiative established with the aim of acknowledging and rewarding excellence in all aspects of packaging science, technology, design and application across every country around the world.

In launching this initiative, Thomas Schneider, WPO President said ‘The discipline of packaging is one that is  truly global. The World Packaging Organisation is in a unique position to identify leading practitioners from around the world who have consistently pushed the boundaries in advancing the art, science, and application of packaging to serve the needs of an ever more demanding society. These prestigious awards will celebrate and preserve in perpetuity the collective achievements of these innovators.

Each WPO member (representing a voting member of the national country) will be able to make up to one nomination each year via the online registration form.  The first group of honorees will be selected by December of 2016 and will be recognised during the WorldStar Awards Ceremony in Düsseldorf, May 2017.
