Pro Carton/ECMA Carton Award

Pro Carton ECMA Award 2014 – the finalists!

The Pro Carton ECMA Award is widely supported: in 2014, more companies participated than ever before, and at 120 entries, this is the second highest number of entries in the history of the competition. The award ceremony is a premiere this year: the winners will receive their awards at the first joint congress of ECMA and Pro Carton in festive surroundings – on 18. September at the Award Gala in Sorrento (Italy).

The jury was delighted by the high number of excellent (and successful!) solutions. The participants had placed great value on providing coherent overall concepts for products, packaging and marketing.

New approaches were apparent in terms of handling: more and more packaging is being filled in-store and this needs to be addressed. Portioning and presentation of the contents are adapted to the consumer situation ("ToGo", gift, tasting with friends …).

Here is an overview of the finalists in the eight main categories from which the category winners as well as the "Carton of the Year" and the "Most Innovative" and "Sustainability" awards will be selected.

After 18. September the finalists and award winners will be documented on the website of the Pro Carton/ECMA Awards (www.procartonecmaaward.com): with short videos of the jury's discussions for each category and with print-ready images and the judges' comments and the success stories.
