Also for 2021, in a manner compatible with the current pandemic, the “Pro carton student video award and young designers award” returns: the most prestigious award given annually in Europe for video storytelling for the promotion of sustainable packaging design and for the creation of packaging design itself. The video, specifically, should promote or explain the advantages of using cardboard in a creative way. It should not be forgotten, in fact, that the raw material used in the production of cardboard is wood, but almost 50 per cent of the fibre used for packaging comes from recycled paper and cardboard, so that no more trees are used than are planted.
The “Pro carton young designers award” has proved to be an outstanding contest for those who want to try their hand at packaging. The call for entries has already been published on the Pro carton website: the deadline for submitting entries is 24 May 2021.
The call for videos has also already been published on the Pro carton website. For students of Fine Arts Academies, including RUFA, there is the possibility of participating individually or in groups, up to a maximum of four people. The deadline for submitting the short film is 25 June 2021. The winning video will receive a prize of € 5,000.00 and the authors will be invited to the gala evening that will take place in September.
