About Pentawards

Created in 2007, the Pentawards is the first and most prestigious worldwide competition, devoted exclusively to packaging design.

Each year, packaging from around the world is judged by an international jury of 15 highly respected designers, packaging design directors and marketing chiefs from major global brands.

There are six main award categories: Beverages, Body, Food, Luxury, Other Markets & Sustainable Design; these are then split into 57 sub categories.

Each year, the Pentawards gala ceremony is held 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. 

Last year, the Pentawards gala ceremony was held at the world-famous Guggenheim Museum in New York.
