Better with Less – Design Challenge open for submissions

Packaging Solutions

The Better with Less – Design Challenge 2022 is now open for submissions. The competition invites designers around the world to create the zero waste packaging of the future and is open for submissions to 1 December, 2022.

A jury of renowned package design experts will be looking for lighter, smarter, and circular solutions for some of the most common consumer packages. The competition is organised by Metsä Board.

‘In the future, circular economy will guide all consumption. The need for packaging keeps growing, and we must use design in more innovative ways to respect the resources of our planet,’ said the Better with Less – Design Challenge jury chairman Ilkka Harju, packaging services director, EMEA and APAC at Metsä Board. ‘We are asking competition entrants to acknowledge the package’s entire lifecycle from efficient design to easy recycling and purposeful reuse – producing zero waste. It is huge responsibility, but also a brilliant playground for innovation.’

The Better with Less – Design Challenge calls for designers to showcase solutions made of recyclable materials from renewable sources and designs that improve the experience while decreasing the use of resources and waste.

The jury will award the three best zero waste packaging designs with €10,000, €3000 and €2000 prizes. For student participants there will be an additional award – an internship at the company’s Excellence Centre in Finland.

Better with Less – Design Challenge is an initiative to inspire packaging designers all over the world to create packaging solutions that can have a big impact on the world – while reducing the impact of packaging on the environment.
