International Competition of Packaging Design
About Young Package
Young Package is a competition in packaging design. It is meant for young designers of up to 30 years of age. Since its foundation in 1996, the Young Package competition has achieved an international reputation and a distinctive position among competitions for young designers. Every year, several hundred participants from the whole world send their entries.
Young Package focuses on packages made of paper. The competition was founded to invite students and creative people, and challenge them to create designs of corrugated and smooth cardboard or other paper materials widely used in packaging design. .
Young Package is held annually. Its founder Model Obaly, the Czech branch of international Model company, is a leading package manufacturer and a great believer in supporting and challenging young creative talents. Since 2009, the competition has been organised by CZECHDESIGN.CZ.
Packaging design has a special position not only in design, marketing and transport, but also in how it affects the environment. Paper waste makes up about 25% of household waste and it cannot be recycled indefinitely. Therefore, we have chosen a topic that can help reduce the amount of packaging waste and at the same time provide an additional use for consumers - PACKAGE UNLIMITED. Let's cut down the proportion of non-recyclable packaging waste, and let's think about how to create a package with multiple uses.
We are looking for imaginative, multi-functional and detailed packages that can be used for several purposes.
Create an innovative package and show how packaging doesn’t have to end up in the trash.
Think of a package that blooms after use, a special pencil case, or a package that becomes part of the product after opening. Create an imaginative and thoughtful package for your favourite product, which could be used for better handling of the product after unpacking, or be used for decoration. Discover the possibilities of paper!
Create a package so graphically eye-catching, that nobody would want to throw it away. Take time exploring design solutions and finding additional packaging functions!
