About the Awards

Rewarding every area of the packaging industry 

The UK Packaging Awards are organised by Packaging News and are unique in recognising every area of the packaging supply chain.

The event is now in its eleventh year and in that time has become the leading packaging awards event in the UK market.

The judging process is strictly impartial and the categories reward a broad range of areas including packaging quality and consistency, business strategy, financial performance and personal achievement.

 

Honouring quality and performance 

The UK Packaging Awards has a category for all segments of the industry, from corrugated and flexible packaging to design and investment in equipment.

Each award is split between two key category types, the Quality Awards or the Performance Awards:

The Performance Awards reward business financial performance and strategy, outstanding company projects and individual achievement. Entrants in the Performance Awards categories must be companies registered in the UK, with either a UK or overseas ownership.
 
The Quality Awards reward the quality of specific pieces of packaging. With the exception of category J, Metal Pack of the Year, all entrants must be able to demonstrate that the pack was either manufactured in the UK, developed in the UK (for example by a UK-based packaging development team at a brand or retailer) or designed in the UK (for example by a UK-based design agency) on or after 1 May 2015. In addition, the pack must be entered into the competition by the UK-based entity involved in its creation. The only exception to this is the Metal Pack of the Year category, which is only open to members of the EMPAC association and must have been produced in countries covered by the EMPAC (European Metal Packaging) association.

Your big chance to put your pack in the spotlight

Entering the UK Packaging Awards will provide you with the unique opportunity to put your pack in front of a selection of the biggest packaging buyers in the UK.

Your entries will be judged by an independent panel of packaging buyers and specifiers from brands including; M&S, Waitrose, Sainsbury’s, Müller, Bacardi and Nestlé.

Previous winners have generated business as a direct consequence of entering these awards.

 

The industry’s biggest night out 

The UK Packaging Awards 2016 will be presented at a glittering awards ceremony on Wednesday 27 October 2016 at the Grosvenor House Hotel on Park Lane.

The event has grown enormously in recent years and now attracts more than 750 people from across the packaging supply chain. People come to celebrate the industry's best products and achievements in the company of the sector's leading lights and with fabulous food and entertainment. Even if you don’t enter the UK Packaging Awards, or make it into the shortlist, you are still welcome to come along and enjoy the night with excellent networking opportunities!
