Meet the jury


In 2020 the jury will double in size from fifteen to thirty members. An expansion that demonstrates our commitment to recognising the best of the best in global packaging design. This eclectic mix of design directors from iconic brands, CEOs from the most renowned agencies and general design disruptors in packaging is now more diverse in gender, ethnicity, cultural milieu, origin and specialism than ever before.

A change like this can only be a good thing for you, the entrant. Now our increased jury has more time to get to grips with each and every entry they are judging and are able to make better judgements by sharing their own knowledge and experience to reach the right decision.
