Not every package design can be a winner. It’s up to you to help choose the best of the best from a stable of excellent examples submitted to BRANDPackaging’s 2017 Design Gallery awards.

A brand distinguishes a company from its competitors and creates loyalty among customers. And nothing embodies a brand like its packaging. Through graphic and structural design, an attractive package can make a product stand out. BRANDPackaging’s annual Design Gallery once again demonstrates how great design can capture our imaginations. It is a testament to the industry’s ability to constantly innovate and effectively tell a brand’s story.

Voting for the awards is now open and will be done entirely online. To place your votes, go to the category links below to peruse and choose in each of the five major packaging categories – Metal, Paperboard, Flexible, Rigid and Glass. Voting will close on Monday, Sept. 11, so don’t delay. Your vote could make the difference!

Winners will be recognized with a People’s Choice award on Wednesday, Oct. 25 at the 2017 Packaging That Sells Conference in Chicago. In addition, one package will be awarded the Editor’s Choice award. Register to attend the show and see the awards presentation. At the conference, you’ll hear dynamic presentations on design trends and strategies, and have a great opportunity to network with industry leaders.

Then, watch for a compendium of outstanding packaging that will appear in our Design Gallery annual, due out in December.

Voting continues until Sept. 11. Tell your coworkers, customers and friends to check out the entries and make their choice!
