Packaging Converter of the Year (General) category is open for packaging of FMCG and pharmaceutical products. While the unit value of FMCG products will be substantially lower than that of luxury goods, the judges will be looking for all-round excellence in packaging printing and will take into account the use of difficult substrates and other production constraints.

The Packaging Converter of the Year (Luxury) category encompasses all types of high-value luxury printed packaging including cartons, flexible packaging and other containers that would typically be expected to have a long life cycle. Entries will likely consist of (but are not restricted to) products such as presentation boxes for wines and spirits, media packaging for DVD or book box-sets etc, or beauty products.

At the 2015 PrintWeek India Awards the judges were in awe with the finesse and intricacies of the packaging samples on show.

Parksons Packaging - the winners of the Packaging Printer of the Year (General) Award at the 2015 awards submitted four top quality samples which struck the right balance between aesthetics and brand appeal.

Pragati Pack’s Joy – Celebration Sweet Box for Bikanervala, Teacher’s Origin Whiskey for Beam Global, Tigre Blanc Vodka for Tigre Vodka, and Grants Whiskey – The Family Reserve for William Grant and Sons encompassed high value luxury and were elegant in every sense making them the deserved winners for the Award for Packaging Converter of the Year (Luxury).

For the eighth edition of PrintWeek India Awards, Pidilite, a market leader in adhesives, will associate with PrintWeek India to honour the best in packaging.
