Chicago, June 2014- WPO(World Packaging Organization) announced that the entries for WorldStar Packaging Awards 2015 will be open from 1 July to 10 October 2014.Considered the most important global packaging award, the WorldStar is based on the judges’ consensus that a pack is superior in its own right and better in its class, in execution, or innovation by comparison. The judges consider the following criteria: protection and preservation of contents; ease of handling, filling, opening and closing; adequacy of information; sales appeal; graphic design; quality of production; economy of material and cost reduction; environment; ingenuity of construction; and adaption to local conditions (production, materials, market).

Winners of a WorldStar are also eligible to participate in three other special categories: Sustainable Packaging Award, Marketing Award and President´s Award.
