German Packaging Award Ceremony 2022

German Packaging Award

The German Packaging Award is an international, cross-sector and cross-material competition. With this award, the German Packaging Institute (dvi) honours innovations and the best solutions in packaging - from seemingly small but groundbreaking details to fundamental innovations.

The German Packaging Award is awarded in 10 categories and is open to submissions from designers, developers, manufacturers and users of packaging solutions and machines as well as the creative newcomers in the industry. Products, concepts, developments or prototypes are eligible for submission.

Patronage of the BMWi

The competition was launched in 1963 as a means of promoting innovation, is under the patronage of the Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Climate Protection and has developed over the years into Europe's most prestigious showcase of packaging achievements. It puts the best solutions in the spotlight and their creators on the big stage. Winners of the packaging award are simultaneously nominated for the WorldStar of the World Packaging Organisation (WPO).

Gold award

In addition to the Packaging Award, the even more exclusive Gold Award is also presented. With the Gold Award, the jury can distinguish solutions from among the packaging award winners that represent particularly groundbreaking or pioneering innovations.

Strong arguments for sales and marketing

Winners of the packaging award receive a certificate and can use the title and seal as a packaging award winner to advertise the winning product for an unlimited period of time and in the media. By winning the Packaging Award or the even more exclusive Gold Award, the winners document their outstanding innovative strength. They put an exclamation mark and win tangible arguments in communication with customers, consumers, partners, future employees and their own team.

Independent jury

The jury of the German Packaging Award is reconstituted annually. It is very broadly based and consists of experts from trade associations, companies, teaching, research and trade media. The jury meets for a two-day session where all submissions are reviewed and discussed. The dvi provides information about the jury members on the German Packaging Award website. This year, the jury meeting was held at the premises of premium partner IGEPA group.
