Who Can Enter?

This competition is open to students enrolled in a collegiate-level design program or packaging engineering program (undergraduate or graduate) anywhere in the world who have already won an award at a national/multi-national competition for students organised or recognised by that country's or region’s WPO member National Packaging Body. Students from countries without a National Packaging Body can enter through a National Student Competition, which is recognized by WPO or another WPO member organization.

All entry forms and documentation must be submitted in English.

The entry form must be completed in full before submission. Once complete, the entry fee needs to be paid before the entry can be accepted.
The entry fee per entry is based on 15.00 (Fifteen Euros) but  is paid in South African Rands (ZAR) and may be paid by credit card online (MasterCard or Visa). The exchange rate is calculated automatically at the time of payment and the final payment may vary slightly according to the bank exchange rate at the time of processing.

The entry fee must be paid by 1st November 2021 to validate the entry.

Multiple entries may be submitted on behalf of students, for example by the organisors of a national competition. However the entrant is still deemed to be the student responsible for the entry and is bound by the rules of the competition.

All projects entered must have been designed / completed after August 2020 up to this year's closing date.

Entrants who have graduated in 2021 or those fulfilling the conditions of the qualifying national or regional student competition will also be accepted as students.
