The German Packaging Award is awarded by two juries comprising of experts from trade associations, trade press, research, teaching, industry and retail.

They examine and evaluate all the submissions and samples in a two-day meeting at the beginning of August according to transparent criteria.

Trade associations in the packaging industry have proposed the members of the expert jury.

We present the members of our main jury to you online. They also have the discretion to award the Gold Awards.
