The winners of the Swiss Packaging Award 2022 are delighted - their successors will soon be chosen.

Originally, submissions for the Swiss Packaging Award - the most prestigious prize in the Swiss packaging industry - were only to be possible until 15.01.2023. Now the organizers announce that the deadline has been extended until the end of January. Registration is possible online.

Who can participate?

The competition is open to innovative packaging, packaging aids, displays (product-carrying systems, presentation elements) as well as packaging and packaging systems that have been developed, designed, manufactured or distributed by Swiss companies or persons or by foreign companies or persons that have introduced their entries to the Swiss market. Several packages may be submitted per entrant.

Young talents are also called upon to enter their packaging ideas in the Swiss Packaging Award: For pupils and students, participation is free of charge. They will be judged by the jury in the corresponding category. The prerequisite is that the products have not been launched on the market.

Eight awards to be won

The Swiss Packaging Award is presented in the categories Sustainability, Convenience, Design, Marketing, Technology / Construction / Machine Systems. In addition, there will be the Young Talent Award and the Audience Award as special categories. For the first time, the Special Jury Prize will be awarded. Here, the members of the jury will award prizes for what they consider to be outstanding entries. Packaging of all materials is eligible for the competition. The focus is on promoting and honoring holistic packaging solutions, regardless of the packaging material. A jury of 16 experts nominates up to three packages per category in a judging process lasting two days, from which a winner is chosen.

Public votes for most popular packaging of the year

The winner of the audience award will not be decided by a panel of experts, but by consumers, who will use e-voting to choose their favorite packaging of the year. The public vote will take place from February 15 to April 15, 2023.
