The Glass Packaging Institute is now accepting submissions for the 2017 Clear Choice Awards. This is the only awards program that recognizes the contribution glass packaging makes to the image and success of everyday products.
The Awards are open to all North American glass container manufacturers and their customers to submit products introduced between August 2016 and August 2017. Products may be entered for an award in one of eight categories. See all the submission guidelines and enter by August 15, 2017: www.ClearChoiceAwards.com.
An independent panel of leaders from the food and beverage media and industry, lifestyle editors and contributors, and design and packaging professionals will judge each submission on four criteria: innovation, package design, shelf impact, and how well the package tells the story of the brand or product.
Since 1989, the Clear Choice Awards program has honored consumer product goods (CPG) manufacturers who find unique ways to use glass packaging to tell the story of their brand, create glass packaging designs that stand out on the shelf, and demonstrate novel glass packaging looks.
“We look forward to seeing this year’s submissions,” says Lynn Bragg, president of GPI. “Glass bottles and jars are not only naturally beautiful, but glass is a sustainable and healthy choice that delivers on taste and premium appeal.”
The 2017 Clear Choice Awards winners will be announced at the Packaging That Sells Conference in Chicago, IL, on October 24, 2017. Award winners will also be featured in a variety of digital and print media.
Entries for the 2017 Clear Choice Awards also are eligible for the BRANDPACKAGING People’s Choice Glass award given out at Packaging That Sells, as well as placement in the December Design Gallery branding and design annual.
