Gala Highlights

The Pentawards Gala event saw the world’s most esteemed and upcoming designers, brands, and packaging professionals coming together as the 2022 competition winners were revealed and awarded their highly coveted Pentawards trophies.


This year's winners got their hands on our newly redesigned trophies, developed by New York-based agency Established. 

In its first ever update after 16 years, the new design is a fresh and modern look that has kept all of your favourite elements. For our Special Award trophies, we chose different colours, textures, and materials to deliver an unprecedented winning experience.
