Entries are now open for the 2018 Packaging & Processing Innovation & Design Awards (PIDA), the sole entry point for Australian and New Zealand companies to compete at the international WorldStar Packaging Awards.
The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) says the awards are designed to recognise companies and individuals who are making a significant difference in their field in Australia and New Zealand.
The PIDAs will recognise companies designing innovative packaging and processing materials, packaging and processing machinery/equipment within the Food, Beverage, Health, Beauty & Wellness and Domestic & Household markets.
There will also be two special awards for companies, the Sustainable Packaging & Processing Design Award, and Save Food Packaging Design Award.
There are four awards which individuals may compete in, Young Packaging & Processing Professional of the Year, Industry Packaging & Processing Professional of the Year, The APPMA Scholarship and the Packaging Council of New Zealand Scholarship.
The PIDA Awards are organised by the Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP), the Australian Packaging & Processing Machinery Association (APPMA) and the Packaging Council of New Zealand.
The 2018 PIDA Awards will be held in conjunction with the international WorldStar packaging awards, alongside the biennial AIP National Conference on May 2 at Surfers Paradise, Queensland.
