Since its foundation in 1996, Young Package has gained both international reputation and distinctive position among competitions for young designers. This year brings essential changes. The visual style of the competition has changed; for its fifteenth anniversary, the competition has brand new web pages. In addition, conditions and categories have changed as well - so now the contest is open to designers from different areas of interest.
The Young Package competition is held on an annual basis. It originated, and is still functioning, thanks to the initiative of the company Model Obaly, a leading package manufacturer. Model Obaly sees the support of young talents as essential.
EligibilityThe competition is aimed at students and young creative people of up to 30 years of age. Designs made of corrugated or smooth cardboard are accepted, as this material has a broad range of use within packaging design.
- Winner in the Product Package category will be awarded:
- University students and young designers under 30 years of age - 750 Euro
- High school students - 750 Euro
- Winner in the Different View category will be awarded - 750 Euro
- Within the competition, a special CZECHDESIGN.CZ prize will be awarded
