ENTRY CRITERIA

Award for Innovation in Aerosol Package Design – 2013

This Award recognises those achievements in aerosol package design/technology and decoration which increase the appeal of the product to the consumer. This Award Category would apply to any of the following design components:
  • steel and aluminium cans
  • glass and plastic aerosols

Entrants should ensure that they highlight those areas where they believe the package breaks new ground and provide details (where available) of how this impact has translated to increased market acceptance and sales.

Award for the Most Innovative Aerosol Product – 2013

This Award is aimed at encouraging innovation and technical excellence by recognising those marketers and llers who have done something new and different with the aerosol package, for example a new application which introduces new markets and new
