Women in Packaging Awards: Entries close on 24 April

A new initiative for the packaging industry, the Women in Packaging Awards programme aims to spotlight women making change happen and to raise awareness of the industry as an empowering place for women to work. The awards are open to all women engaged in printed packaging and converting companies.

The programme has kicked off with strong industry support, including from the hand-picked panel of judges who have volunteered their time to commit to this important task.

“The panel selected for our inaugural round of the awards represents a talented pool of industry leaders, changemakers, and experts in their respective fields. But above all, these are women who champion other women, who are fully behind what this programme stands for,” said PKN publisher Lindy Hughson.

The categories open for nomination are: Innovation Champion Award; Sustainability Leader Award; Packaging Technologist of the Year Award; Design and Branding Visionary Award; Manufacturing Leader Award; and Communications Excellence Award. You can find out more about the awards criteria and scoring rubric here.

Hughson said the PKN team has been thrilled by the positive response the programme has had from industry ahead of the launch, with a solid list of high-calibre sponsors, and support from association partner AIP. Amcor is the program's Platinum sponsor, with Ball & Doggett and Currie Group taking Gold. Silver sponsors are Avery Dennison, Close the Loop Group, Impact International, Planet Protector Group and Tetra Pak, while Bronze sponsors are Delta Global, FujiFilm, Positiv and Trimatt.

Entries close on 24 April. The finalists will be announced in May, with finalists and winners recognised at the PKN Women in Packaging Awards luncheon event taking place on Friday 21 June at The Gallery - Beta in Sydney. Book your tickets here.
