About the Competition
Over the past twenty years the Model Young Package competition has been giving an opportunity to hundreds of designers all around the world to present their original ideas. A lot of young designers who won in the past have later become respected professionals.
the competition is organized internationally and is the largest competition of its kind in the world. Each year, almost a thousand designers from over 60 countries worldwide sign-up. The jury of experts evaluates the artworks that must be delivered physically as functional prototypes in 1:1 scale.
The Model Young Package is a competition focused on paper products. We accept prototypes of packaging made of corrugated or smooth cardboard and other paper materials. The aim of the competition is to select winning designs (artworks) that best meet the assignment. For particularly successful designs, the Promoter can approach the author for completion and realization of the design for production.
The theme of the competition is ‘Unboxing Experience’.
