What ?

Since 2009, Verallia, a global player in glass packaging, has been organizing a design competition that brings together several hundred participants each year. This competition offers you to imagine an innovative project of bottles or glass jars around a defined theme. Verallia positions itself as an incubator of the project which may have a chance to be marketed. Try your luck !

Who ?

The contest is open to all students or youngs graduates in design, packaging but also plastic arts schools.

Why ?

Participate in this contest is to discover the material through a practical case of development in semi professional conditions. The Verallia Design Awards contest is also a contest classified in the TOP 10 of the students competitions to promote its CV.

How ?

Participate in the adventure! Take inspiration from the theme of this year, “Go green” and break the codes of glass around the concept of sustainable development and ecology.

Theme 2019 Party glass

On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the Verallia Design Awards, you will imagine a glass packaging on the theme of the party.

The celebration of an event – be it a success, a birthday, a wedding, a graduation, a sporting feat, a family party, etc. – is accompanied by drinks or food enhancing this moment of exception.

Your project will reflect these moments of rejoicing and sharing: thanks to its unique design and its aesthetic or functional characteristics, the packaging will be perfectly associated with the party. It can be kept as a souvenir of this special moment.
