Entries to the most important international sustainable packaging competition have smashed last year's record by 60%. Now we have removed the duplicates and entries that don't meet the criteria and our expert judging panel has started its deliberations, we are sharing below the complete list of approved submissions to the 2019 edition of the annual, global snapshot of sustainable packaging innovation. 

As well as seeing by far more engagement than ever before, this year's edition of the competition was the most internationally diverse, attracting submissions from five continents, featuring entries from countries as distant as Brazil and Taiwan, Israel and Canada, Nigeria and Finland. Reflecting the world's present preoccupation with packaging waste, the categories with the most submissions were 'Recyclable Packaging' and 'Driving the Circular Economy' with 59 and 48 entries respectively. In selecting the best of the best the independent judging panel will look for the most significant innovations with the biggest holistic impacts.
