The Australian Institute of Packaging’s 2024 Australasian Packaging Innovation & Design (PIDA) Awards recognise Australian and New Zealand companies and individuals making a difference in the industry.

The PIDA Awards, the exclusive award program for all Australia and New Zealand entries into the prestigious WorldStar Packaging Awards, coordinated by the World Packaging Organisation (WPO), have been instrumental in shaping the packaging industry.

PIDA Awards winners have consistently ranked among the top three winners in the WorldStar Packaging Awards for the last four years, a testament to their significant contributions.

In an industry-first, this year introduces the PIDA Awards for a Packaging Technologist of the Year. The new category will be open to all AIP Members in Australia, New Zealand and Asia.

The Design Innovation of the Year company awards recognise organisations that have designed innovative packaging within each of these six manufacturing categories including, Food, Beverage, Health & Beauty & Wellness, Domestic & Household, Labelling & Decoration and Outside of the Box.

The four special awards are Sustainable Packaging Design, Save Food Packaging Design, Accessible & Inclusive Packaging Design and Marketing. 

The Young Packaging Professional of the Year, the Industry Packaging Professional of the Year, and the New Packaging Technologist of the Year recognise those who have made specific contributions to the packaging industry.

The Packaging Technologist of the Year Award recognises and acknowledges the outstanding achievements and contributions of an individual currently working within the Packaging industry across Australia, New Zealand & Asia.

The judges will look for packaging technologists, engineers, specialists and designers who have demonstrated advanced technical packaging skills and competencies through projects, initiatives and unique packaging designs.

The individual must be an AIP Member, have been working in the industry for a minimum of 5 years and be working in a technical packaging role. The individual needs to have proven results within the business they work in through their packaging designs.

The judges will also want to hear about the packaging education that the individual has undertaken, the education and training undertaken to elevate their core competencies in the fundamentals of packaging and future goals for advancing their training and knowledge. The judges will look for examples of projects led and driven by the individual and supporting documentation from the business.

Two scholarships are also available: the ABA Diploma in Packaging Scholarship and the ABA Certificate in Packaging Scholarship.
