Wilmington, DE (PRWEB) January 19, 2012
Time is running out to enter the 24th DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation, according to DuPont. Deadline for entries in the industry’s longest-running competition is Feb. 24, 2012. Products commercialized no earlier than January 2010 are eligible. Winners in the program will be honored in May during a ceremony with DuPont senior leadership in Wilmington, Del. They also will be invited to engage with the panel jury to gain insights and advice during an adjacent educational program.
In evaluating entries, the independent juror panel will consider excellence in one or more of these areas: innovation, sustainability and cost/waste reduction. There is no fee for entry, and DuPont materials do not need to be in the packaging structure. Forms, guidelines and past winners can be seen at http://www.packaging.dupont.com. Packaging designers, converters, consumer goods producers, retailers and equipment manufacturers from around the world are encouraged to enter their new product packaging developments.
