โ€œThe 2023 edition is even more special. We are also happy to announce that WPO is introducing two new main Categories - Gift Packaging and Digital Packaging - and one new Special Category - Accessible Packaging.โ€

The WorldStar Packaging Awards highlight the value of packaging innovation on a global scale, promoting science, technology, and innovation, honoring and motivating packaging professionals to push the envelope, and collaborating with brands, packaging businesses, and designers to open up new possibilities.

 

A packaging must have previously won a national or regional packaging award from a WPO-recognized packaging competition during the previous two years to be eligible for a WorldStar Award.  As usual, the goal is to encourage packaging innovation across a variety of industries, showing that a good package can be a crucial remedy for many contemporary issues, including sustainability, food waste, and prolonging the shelf life of food and agricultural products.

Encourage every company in the world to take advantage of this chance to market their packaging by competing with the greatest packaging innovation on a global scale.
