Clear Choice Awards Now Accepting Submissions for 2014

Leading Consumer Products Packaged in Glass Recognized for Innovation, Design and Shelf-Appeal

Alexandria, Virginia (February 20, 2014) - The Glass Packaging Institute (GPI), the trade association representing the North American glass container industry, today announced the official opening of the Call for Entries for the organization’s 2014 Clear Choice Awards. The entry deadline to submit works for consideration is September 7, 2014.

Each year, the one-of-a-kind awards program honors industry excellence by recognizing new glass packages that demonstrate the highest quality in terms of innovation, package design, and shelf impact. Entries for the awards are judged by a distinguished panel of judges, including prominent members of the glass container industry, media and academia, who have an eye for aesthetics, and a clear vision for the future of glass packaging. This year’s competition will also feature a People’s Choice Award, allowing contestants to showcase their products to larger audiences.    

Winners will be announced at PACK EXPO, a leading industry trade show, which will take place on November 2-5, 2014. Winning products will also be displayed at the event, giving winners the opportunity to present their best work to top industry representatives.  

“Recent trends show that innovative glass packaging gives a product a leg-up on the competition,” said Lynn Bragg, President of GPI. “Each year we review a large number of entries at the Clear Choice Awards and recognize those companies that are taking their brand to the next level through glass packaging.”

Launched in 1989, Clear Choice Awards is the only Awards program that recognizes the contribution glass packaging makes to the image and success of everyday products. The Clear Choice Awards winners receive benefit from industry-wide recognition and brand-building promotion.
