June 10, 2019 – AICC, The Independent Packaging Association, is now accepting submissions for the 2019 Independent Package Design Competition. Entries will be judged during the AICC 2019 Annual Meeting, September 16-18, at the Westin Harbour Castle Hotel in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

The Competition features 42 corrugated, folding carton, and rigid box categories, providing a wider reach into the entire packaging market and a greater diversity of ideas. There is a category for everyone to compete and receive recognition for creating and manufacturing successful packaging solutions.

Since 1981, AICC has been proud to recognize, showcase, and reward those independents who have met and exceeded their customers’ expectations of their packaging designs and displays through this competition in which independent box plants compete for first, second, and third place, as well as, honorable mention awards. Competitors can also win the Industry’s People’s Choice Award and take home the prestigious Judges’ Choice Award.

Entering designs into the Independent Packaging Design Competition is an opportunity to:

  • Show off a companys creativity, innovation, and excellence in package design and production capabilities.
  • Recognize the people behind the scenes who helped manufacture the best packaging designs, including employees, customers, and suppliers.
  • Enhance the independent manufacturers’ level of professionalism in the industry.

Submissions are being accepted through Friday, August 16. This year AICC is offering “special” pricing for the competition; the first entry is $250, and all subsequent entries are free. Also, all companies that enter in the competition will receive 50% off one registration to the 2019 Annual Meeting. More information and submission instructions are available at
