Judging wraps up for Asian Packaging Excellence Awards
Judging for the 2020 Asian Packaging Excellence Awards has wrapped up. Due to the ongoing pandemic, judging was delayed.
In previous years, the judging panel consists of international packaging printing experts from across the region. Travel restrictions over the past year in different countries has rendered it almost impossible to organise judging in the same conditions as before.
In order to prevent further delay, judging was conducted in Australia once travel bubbles within the country were lifted. Over the course of two days, judges based in Australia came together and were able to select winners for the 2020 awards.
Winners will be notified by email, and an online virtual awards ceremony will be held soon after.
“We are hopeful that the next Awards we will be able to meet in person at the gala dinner at the end of the year, but let’s get their first with travel open and people being vaccinated, but we really look forward to this live event again in the future,” said Paul Callaghan,
Judging for the Asian Print Awards will be conducted soon.
About the Asian Packaging Excellence Awards

The Awards are judged on a wholly quality-oriented set of criteria to ensure that fair play is enacted at all times. The Independent Judging Panel comprises highly qualified personnel form within Asia and around the world.
