The Better with Less – Design Challenge 2022 competition is inviting designers around the world to create the zero-waste packaging of the future. The competition is open for submissions until December 1, 2022 and is organized by leading European paperboard producer Metsä Board, part of the Metsä Group. A world-class jury of renowned package design experts will be looking for lighter, smarter, and circular solutions for some of the most common consumer packaging.
“We want to discover innovative, fit-for-purpose designs for all types of packaging that have circularity as a starting point for design,” said juror and Competition Chairman Ilkka Harju. “This is a great opportunity to get your ideas seen and make your mark on the circular packaging of the future.” The jury will award the three best zero-waste packaging designs with 10,000, 3,000 and 2,000 Euros respectively. For student participants, there’ll be an additional award – an internship at the company’s Excellence Center in Finland. The contest is an initiative to inspire packaging designers worldwide, including in Canada, to create packaging solutions that could have a huge impact on the world – while also reducing the impact of packaging on the environment. The previous competition attracted entries from 28 countries to showcase their environmentally friendly packaging solutions. For more information and to enter, please visit www.betterwithless.org.
