Package of the Year is an annual competition open to NJPEC members and non-members alike. Examples of outstanding packaging are submitted each September in one of ten industry categories such as Fragrance, Color Cosmetics, Household Industrial and Promotional Packaging. These entries are examined and reviewed by a blue ribbon panel of professional and student judges for their attributes of materials, execution and presentation. Awards are given in each of the categories as well as for outstanding individual merit. These awards are presented at a Gala presentation dinner with live music, tricky tray, goody bags, attendance gifts and commemorative event program in November.
