Four entries made of paperboard from Iggesund Paperboard were selected as finalists in this year's edition of the Pro Carton ECMA Awards in packaging design. Two of them won their categories and were rewarded at an Award Gala on 15 September at the ECMA Congress in Antibes/Juan-les-Pins, France.
There are seven main categories to which anyone in the supply chain (cartonboard and carton manufacturers, designers, retailers and brand product manufacturers) has been welcomed to nominate entries. Iggesund had one finalist in each of the categories Beauty & Cosmetics, Confectionary, Non-food and Volume Markets.
One category winner made on Invercote was Camacho, a cigar brand owned by Davidoff that targets the American market. Here the converter PAWI Verpackungen from Switzerland has created an elegant and stable pack that appealed to the jury. The packaging design is by PAWI's Stefan Springen and the graphic design comes from Scott Birtwistle. Read more about what the jury had to say about the Camacho packaging.
Another category winner was initiated by brand owner Reload Labs who commissioned the Dutch converter Snel BV to develop a packaging for a perfume tester. The packaging design is by Kasper Digitale Media and the graphic design by Tom Hoens. Read the jury´s comments.
