PL Buyer has waived the entry fee for its 7th annual Private Label Packaging Awards Contest. Retailers and wholesalers now can send in their new packaging to be judged free of charge.

Enter one item or a whole line of products — we’re looking for innovative, functional or downright beautiful packaging that achieves its intended purpose and appeals to customer needs. Submissions must be finished goods and feature one of your company’s private labels/store brands.

As in years past, the contest will be judged by a group of packaging experts. The contest winners will be featured in a special report included in the November issue of PL Buyer.

If you will be entering multiple products, please fill out a separate nomination ballot for each product. To complete your submission, you’ll also need to send product/packaging samples to us: photos, drawings and mockups will not be accepted.

It’s easy to enter; the submission form and further details are online. The deadline for submissions is August 27, so don’t delay!

If you have any questions pertaining to the contest, please contact Randy Hofbauer at hofbauerr@bnpmedia.com.
