The 2024 competition is OPEN, submit your entry now!

The Pentawards annual competition, dedicated to recognising global packaging design excellence, has introduced two new subcategories for CBD products and Spirits Collection. In its 18th year, the Pentawards competition is now officially open and welcoming entrants across both sectors to submit their designs.

Spirits Collection - a new sub category within Beverages - celebrates innovative designs of spirit ranges including at least one dark and one clear spirit. The spirits subcategories have historically proven to be some of the most popular and competitive of the annual Pentawards competition, but until now has only provided the opportunity to submit individual packs. Following the introduction of the Wine Collection in 2021 , Pentawards started receiving inquiries about the possibility of a Spirits Collection option, resulting in the launch of the new subcategory for 2024.
