Stora Enso organised The Recreate Packaging 2018 design competition has opened the registration process for students and professional designers.

Stora Enso's Recreate Packaging 2018 design competition has opened the registration process for students and professional designers.

The design competition seeks new packaging ideas and solutions that will be based on renewable fibre-based materials.

This year, the competition challenges participants to create innovative food packaging for children.

Stora Enso Consumer Board division head and jury chairman Annica Bresky said: “Modern families are active and constantly on the go, and the children have a big impact on purchasing decisions.

“It is challenging to make packages that appeal not only to kids and their parents, but also to retail distributors.

"Modern families are active and constantly on the go, and the children have a big impact on purchasing decisions."

“The younger generation makes conscious choices and cares about our planet, so the packages need to offer convenience, make food easily accessible, be fun and encourage healthy eating and sustainable living.”

All the participants will be provided with a material kit from Stora Enso.

The jury will evaluate all entries in the first half of next year.

The winner will be awarded €5,000 in both the student and professional categories, while a Kids’ Choice Award of €2,000 will be granted by a kids’ jury.

The competition also includes a public choice award of €3,000, which will be given to the entrant with a maximum number of votes on the competition website.

Since 2012, the Stora Enso Recreate Packaging competition has been organised biennially.
