Model Young Package
Submission deadline: 14 May 2018
This year, the international competition for packaging design will be honouring the best solution created for coffee. The criteria are functionality, sustainabilitiy, user-friendliness, produceability and, of course, visual impact.
“Coffee Mania” is the slogan for this year’s competition which invites submissions in the form of a paper model by 14 May 2018. The subject is loosely defined and includes ecological packaging for coffee-related products such as coffee beans and coffee cups, as well as other designs with a purely graphic connection to coffee. Pupils, students, and professional designers of all ages are invited to enter. The work submitted will be anonymously assessed by the adjudicating panel consisting of experts in packaging design, who will award the top prize of 2,000 euros to students and designers and 1,200 euros to the best entry by a pupil.
The Model Young Package competition is sponsored by the Czech packaging company Model Obaly, which will also offer the winner a three-week internship in its development laboratory. A special prize will also be awarded by the Czechdesign organisation.
Last year, more than 700 designers from 57 countries entered their experimental packaging designs. The top prize was won by a Czech student who designed a playful concept for paint brushes.
