Posted by Jenni Spinner, Senior Editor -- Packaging Digest, 1/28/2013 7:52:00 AM
This year again the Pentawards will be open to conceptual packaging, and so also to students.
BIC, internationally known for its simple, inventive and reliable products, wants to reward creativity via the Pentawards, the first worldwide competition devoted uniquely to packaging design.
The student whose conceptual packaging entered for the 2nd Pentawards Concept Competition has collected the most points awarded by the international jury (all categories combined) will be entitled, in addition to his/her prestigious Pentaward, to a special BIC "best in class" trophy, plus a cash prize, and will participate in a BIC USA package design assignment.
Registration: from 4 February to 1 March.
Participation: € 30 for students, € 150 for professionals.
Last year, 8 design schools stand out at Pentawards.
It should be noted that students who won prizes at the 1st Concept Pentawards Competition are pursuing their studies at design schools in France, Russia, Australia, Belgium, Sweden, Israel, Singapore ... showing the global character of design teaching.
