Since its foundation in 1996, Young Package has gained both international reputation and distinctive position among competitions for young designers. 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.

Eligibility

The 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.

Categories

The 2011 edition of Young Package maintains the two categories introduced in the fifteenth year of the competition. The first category, Product package, targets product designers and package constructors. In this category competitors will be asked to package their national product. The second category, Different View, aims to attract attention of graphic designers and illustrators. The theme of this inspirational category has become 'Book as a package for words'.

Prizes

The winner of each category will receive EUR 1000. Event partners have prepared many awards to be given to the other competitors. A special prize by Slovak Design Center will also be given.

Terms and conditions

Entries sent by postal service will be accepted from participants registered through an online registration form. High school, college, university students, and designers of up to 30 years of age can register in two categories: Product Package and Different View.

With their entries, participants do not include any CDs or portfolios; they can use the registration form, which provides room for description.

Registration
