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, “The Glass to live the moment” !

2023 Theme The Glass to live the moment

Between creativity and authenticity, glass brings together the beautiful and the commonplace: it has created, over the millennia, a unique emotional bond with the consumer. A bond renewed today in the recycling chain and its ecological advantages.

Each candidate will be able to invent a glass bottle or jar, making the most of the creative possibilities offered by the material glass.

Surfing on the trend of slowing down and searching for well-being, we propose you to create containers (bottles and jars) that are inspired by nature (biomimicry) and provide sensations of peace and serenity (by their shape, their finishes or their colors).

This theme applies to all markets: still and sparkling wines, spirits, beer, water and non-alcoholic beverages, food.

A mentor for a sensory and experiential dimension Pierre Charrié

Pierre Charrié conducts research on the sensory and experiential dimension of everyday objects.

The son of a musician and an occupational therapist, he is interested in the way in which material, sound, movement and touch can create new interactions and challenge the way things are used.

Dedicated to innovation and economy of resources, each of his projects is an encounter between the sensitive and the technical, the existing and the unexpected.

His forward-looking projects, which have won awards and been exhibited, provide the basis for his collaborations with galleries, publishers, institutions and manufacturers.
