Look around you. Packaging is everywhere! From the cleaning products we use to the cereal we choose, everything has been carefully packaged to get it safely from the factory to the shop shelves. Without even thinking about it, we have all been influenced to buy something because of the design of the packaging.

The 2020 Students and Schools Starpack Award will take place for the first time virtually in a first ever awards ceremony hosted by Andy Miller held on Wednesday 24 June at 14:00 BST for schools and 16:00 BST for students. The winners will be presented with their awards with comments from the judges and prizes.

The Starpack Schools and Student awards encourage young people to take up careers in the exciting world of consumer packaging design and with more than 360 entries to judge there was no shortage of excellent work. The judges awarded 23 highly commended, 27 bronze, 35 silver and 34 gold stars across both competitions along with Best in Show and Best Portfolio.

We are delighted to have sponsorship for the awards from Logoplaste, Metal Packaging Manufacturers Association, Rigid Containers, Klockner Pentaplast, Smurfit Kappa, RPC, Graphic Packaging International.
