The Quality Awards

The Quality Awards recognize excellence in Can packaging production, design and innovation. They are open to anyone involved in packaging production, specification or design.

Judges will not know who has produced the packs in the Quality Awards; thereby ensuring that they judge purely the quality of the pack. We have created a standard electronic form
that you must fill in and return to us by email by 31 July 2015, 5pm.

The standard form will ask for a 300-word written summary of the pack that will cover:

  • The brief for the pack
  • How the pack meets the brief
  • How the pack demonstrates excellence or innovation in design and production
  • Evidence of how the pack added value to the brand

You will also be required to provide details on who has been involved in creating the pack, including names of material suppliers, manufacturers, designers and clients. Judges will not see this information.

Judges will be looking for the pack that offers the optimal solution to its brief and will consider a range of relevant aspects including:

  • Shapes and structures
  • Print and production quality
  • Graphics and decoration
  • Shelf stand-out
  • Useability and openability
  • Product protection
  • Supply chain efficiency
  • Innovation and originality
  • Environmental impact
  • Added value to the brand
