About the Pentawards competition

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 five main award categories: beverages, body, food, luxury and other markets; these are then split into 55 sub categories.

In 2018, there were a staggering 2,304 entries, from 5 continents and 62 countries.

In the first week of September, the winners will 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.
