WorldStar Awards 2015 now open for entries

WorldStar Packaging Awards 2015 are now open for entries.

WPO (World Packaging Organization) has announced that the entries for WorldStar Packaging Awards 2015 will be open from 1 July to 10 October 2014. Considered the most important global packaging award, the WorldStar is based on the judges’ consensus that a pack is superior in its own right and better in its class, in execution, or innovation by comparison. The judges consider the following criteria: protection and preservation of contents; ease of handling, filling, opening and closing; adequacy of information; sales appeal; graphic design; quality of production; economy of material and cost reduction; environment; ingenuity of construction; and adaption to local conditions (production, materials, market).

There is a new category this year, the Point of Sale Category that recognizes the best packaging in the end of aisle display in store units/counter display. Winners of a WorldStar are also eligible to participate in three other special categories: Sustainable Packaging Award, Marketing Award and President´s Award.
