Established in 2007. The Pentawards is the first and most prestigious worldwide competition, devoted exclusively to packaging design in all of it's forms.
Each year, packaging from around the world is judged by an international jury of 12 highly respected designers, packaging design directors and marketing chiefs from major global brands. By participating in the Pentawards, packaging designers, design students, brand-owners and packaging producers have the opportunity to compare their creations to those from around the world.
There are six main award categories: beverages, body, food, luxury, other markets and sustainable design; these are then split into 55 sub categories.
In 2018, there were 2,318 entries from 5 continents and 62 countries.
The winners receive bronze, silver, gold and platinum Pentawards. The ‘Best of the Show’ receives the unique Diamond Pentaward. Each year, trophies are awarded in a different city in Europe, Asia or the Americas, at an official ceremony which hosts hundreds of designers from around the world, and provides a unique opportunity to meet and exchange ideas.
