Back It's time to make your mark in the league!

Showcasing the creative minds behind the world’s finest packaging design, our league tables rank the most successful design agencies, freelancers, universities, packaging suppliers and manufacturers. The question is, can you climb up the table or hold on to your top spot?

The professional and student league tables are updated each year, to reflect the best creative minds in packaging design, and are based on the winning entries from the Pentawards competition. Year after year, the quality and variety of the entries has grown, making that top spot more and more difficult to reach.

But don't worry, there's still time to make your mark in the 2021 league tables - just enter the competition before it closes on 19 March. If you don't compete, then you're making way for your competitors…

Turner Duckworth currently tops the Pentawards World Top 20 League Table, with an overwhelming total of 117 points. The advertising agency, which has worked for major names including McDonald’s, Amazon and Coca-Cola, has accumulated these points in just 14 years, standing as an example to all those brands and agencies aiming to break through.

As their Global Chief Creative Officer Sarah Moffat commented: “it doesn’t just mean that we have a shelf full of shiny trophies but it’s also a testament to the relentless spirit of our team and their ongoing commitment that only the best is good enough.


Last year, we revealed the first Student League Table featuring the Top 10 Universities based on the number of awards won by students since 2007. It showcases where the top global talent in packaging design is coming from, so if you want to get your names out on the international stage and claim the top spot, this is your chance!

The best overall student entry will also be crowned the NXT-GEN Award winner, which recognises the most inspiring student entries, providing a platform to showcase the next generation of packaging design talents. As the first ever NXT-GEN winner, Yu Chen, said: “After winning Pentawards, my design career completely changed. Although Pentawards is not the only award I won, it is the award that has had the greatest influence.”
