Stand Out from the PACK: Early Bird Pricing Coming to a Close for 2020 Packaging Design Awards Entries

Sonoma, Calif. -- Two weeks remain for wine producers across North America to submit their entries for Wine Business Monthly’s 2020 Packaging Design Awards with the discounted Early Bird registration–entry fees rise on June 9, 2020.

Wine Business Monthly, a champion of innovation in the drinks business, hosts the annual wine industry competition to cultivate fresh ideas and perspective about new packaging designs. Year after year, the Packaging Design Awards have helped build a sense of community around packaging design advocates, and recognize those companies that are pushing the envelope when it comes to new takes on the classics and alternative formats.

The introduction of two new categories this year—Best Can Design and Best Assorted Set Design—reflect current trends among consumer purchasing habits, which continue to morph due to the global health crisis. Now more than ever, wineries and brands need to rethink the way they reach their customers, with packaging at the forefront. The Packaging Design Awards aim to serve as a platform to celebrate those who are already thinking outside the bottle, and to create an environment of shared creativity among industry peers that will stimulate continued success in sales and market strategies.

The competition invites packaging entries for wine made with grapes from all North American appellations. With seven professionally judged categories to enter, a wide range of packaging achievements will be recognized.

Winners will be announced in August 2020, with top entries in each category appearing in the September 2020 issue of Wine Business Monthly, featured on and promoted across all Wine Business Monthly social media outlets. A bonus People’s Choice award offers even more industry recognition, as all participants will have a chance to vote for the most outstanding package.
