Established in 1964, the Starpack Students competition challenges students to submit solutions to problems set by brand-leading FMCG companies, design agencies and manufacturers, and win recognition of their excellence. 

The expectation and key criterion for judging success is for students to really challenge conventional thinking and break the rules with off-the-wall creativity.   

Why enter?

Winners of our sponsored briefs receive cash prizes and some sponsors offer fantastic opportunities for work placements with leading packaging companies.

Who can enter?

The competition is open to students studying a wide range of Higher Education courses, from those with a graphics emphasis to courses concerned with structural/product design, as well as materials/technology courses.

Entering the competition provides an excellent opportunity for students to showcase their great ideas and solutions directly to an industry which is looking for rising stars.
