Back O-I: EXPRESSIONS Design Awards 2021

Leading glass packaging manufacturer O-I has launched its Expressions Design Awards 2021 for young designers.

O-I is inviting design students and designers under the age of 30 to design innovative and appealing glass packaging in their first ever O-I: Expressions Design Awards competition.

Entrants will be tasked with creating 2D or 3D prototypes that can be printed directly onto the glass of a 75cl premium standard bottle using the capabilities of O-I: EXPRESSIONS.

The competition is free to enter, and what's more, O-I will produce the five shortlisted designs, which will be on display at Packaging Innovations London and in wide-ranging industry communications.

Expert jury members, including Head of Pentawards Adam Ryan, will select five finalists alongside the winner, who will receive an Apple iPad Pro and Apple pencil.

Melianthe Leeman, Global Marketing Director for Wines And Spirits at O-I Glass said:

“Packaging design has long been centred on aesthetic appeal and product protection. Now, it also involves communicating brand sustainability. O-I is delighted to be supporting this exciting competition in collaboration with PLD and Pentawards; we would love to see all young designers and design students put their skills to the test.”

Although a UK based contest, the competition is open to design students and designers under 30 across the globe, and the deadline for submissions 15 June 2021.
