Submissions are now being accepted to the 23rd DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation, billed as the industry’s longest-running independently judged competition. Packaging designers, converters, consumer goods producers, retailers and equipment manufacturers from around the world are encouraged to enter their new product packaging developments.  There is no fee for entry and DuPont materials do not need to be in the packaging structure.  In evaluating entries, jurors will consider excellence in one or more of these areas: innovation, sustainability and cost/waste reduction. Entry forms and guidelines are available at www.packaging.dupont.com. The deadline for entries is Feb. 28.
