Results of Packaging Design National Student Competition 2019, held for the 15th time this year by the Turkish Packaging Manufacturers Association (ASD) have been announced. Emphasizing that 152 student projects were submitted for the competition, Turkish Packaging Manufacturers Association ASD President Mr. Zeki Sarıbekir said, "Our competition is very important not only for students but also for our industry and our country. A package design is at least as much important as the product it contains. Hence we attach great significance to our young designers”.
Winners of the 15th Packaging Design National Student Competition, held in collaboration with Turkish Packaging Manufacturers Association (ASD) and Eurasia Packaging Istanbul Exhibition organizer Reed TÜYAP have been confirmed. Projects of students who attended the competition which was organized to encourage students studying design in Turkey to consider packaging design were evaluated by the Selection Committee on July 3, 2019. First, Second, Third, Honorable Mention and Certificate ranking will be announced with a ceremony that will take place in the opening of Eurasia Packaging Istanbul Exhibition on October 23, 2019.
AN OPPORTUNITY FOR REPRESENTING TURKEY IN INTERNATIONAL COMPETITIONS
Bringing major packaging manufacturers in Turkey together, ASD allows students to reflect their dreams on design. Emphasizing that packaging design requires creativity, Mr. Zeki Sarıbekir said, "Packaging design is as important as the product and creates more value. People applying to our competition from various colleges should believe in their goals and work hard to achieve their dreams. Moreover, students who succeed in our competition are entitled to 12 months scholarship a year. They will also be able to take part in WorldStar Student, organized by WPO -World Packaging Organization- and AsiaStar, organized by APF -Asian Packaging Federation- and compete for a world-wide win in these competitions. 13 student projects that won a rank in the 14th Packaging Design National Student Competition, organized last year were entitled to take part in AsiaStar and WorldStar Student competitions. Turkey returned with 2 Honorary Mentions and 11 Certificates from WorldStar Student and 6 from AsiaStar, which are competitions hosting hundreds of students worldwide and proved the strength of its packaging industry to the whole world once again. We believe our students will return from the international competitions with success once again this year. As our students keep winning, Turkey will come a long way on the way to be the packaging center in Eurasia”.
