New: as of now the Pro Carton/ECMA Award is open to all partners in the supply chain - entries from the cartonboard and carton industry, as well as designers, manufacturers of branded products and the retail trade are welcome. After all, each member of the supply chain adds its contribution to the design of successful packaging.
We call it "Going Public": in its 16th year, the Award will be open to all partners in the supply chain. What used to be a competition for the cartonboard and carton industry has now become a competition for all partners in the supply chain, and thus, for everyone involved in developing packaging.
Not only the members of Pro Carton – the cartonboard and carton manufacturers –, but also the manufacturers of branded goods, the retail trade and designers can, as of now, enter "their" packaging. Pro Carton would like to open the competition to all relevant partners in Europe and involve them more in the Award, but especially in communicating the message that cartonboard is not only a sustainable medium but also a successful marketing instrument.
The Pro Carton/ECMA Award is the stage where Europe's best cartonboard packaging is presented and generates positive public awareness for the entire industry. This is amply demonstrated by the response to the Award website and the Pro Carton press releases. The European press has published numerous articles on the event. The basis for this tremendous success is the extensive marketing package that Pro Carton has created for the Award, all participants, and especially the winners and finalists:

The more dedicated the members in the supply chain are with their entries, the more effectively the Award can be utilised as marketing platform for each entry, and the more prominent the efforts of the participants can be presented.
