June 2018 WPO (World Packaging Organization) announces that the entries for WorldStar Packaging Awards are now open and the closing date is 20 September 2018. “We encourage every WPO member across the globe to help us promote the largest and most important global packaging award”, alerts Pierre Pienaar, President of WPO.

Packages eligible for WorldStar are those that have already received a national award recognized by WPO. “In its 51st year, WorldStar is one of the major events of WPO and last year attracted over 300 entries from 38 countries around the world. As always, our aim for the next competition is to increase the number of entries and countries participating”, adds Pienaar.

The packages registered until the closing date – 20 September – will be judged in Jinan, China, on 24 October, during the 2nd WPO Board Meeting
