Student and Schools Starpack 2019: Call for Entries

7 Nov 2018

Nominations for the Student and Schools Starpack Awards for 2019 are open. The awards encourage young people to take up careers in the exciting world of consumer packaging design.

The Student Starpack Awards challenge students from a wide range of courses, some with a graphics emphasis and others concerned with structural/product design, as well as those from materials/technology courses, to submit solutions to problems. This year’s briefs include environmental issues and new technology.

The Schools Starpack Awards are open to pupils and students currently studying at Key Stage 4, GCSE's, AS/A2, BTEC Levels 2/3 and NCFE programmes aiming to help students understand the work going into packaging and the vital role it plays in the consumer market. Briefs this year address packaging waste and healthy eating, among others.

The briefs for both schools and students are available online with the deadline for online registration on Friday 29 March 2019.

We are delighted to have sponsorship for the awards from Graphic Packaging International, RPC, Logoplaste, Bakkavor, Smurfit Kappa, the University of Cambridge, NHS, Klöckner Pentaplast and The Packaging Society.

The Starpack Awards are organised by IOM Communications Ltd on behalf of the Institute of Materials Minerals and Mining (IOM3) and endorsed by The Packaging Society, a division of IOM3.
