The judges recently uncovered the star performers among this year’s 43 Gold Pack Awards finalists. Gold, silver and bronze winners will be revealed on November 14 at the Inanda Club in Sandton.
Gold Pack Awards convener, Bill Marshall, explains that the judging panel is selected according to their extensive experience and expertise in various packaging, branding and consumer-related fields.
This year’s panel included branding and advertising expert, Andy Rice; award-winning consumer journalist, Wendy Knowler; head of Stellenbosch University’s Food Science Department, Gunnar Sigge; and well-known packaging industry personalities: Ralph von Veh, Charles Muller, Annabé Pretorius and Kishan Singh.
At the end of two full days of judging, the panel agreed that 43 entries should be awarded ‘finalist’ status. It’s interesting to note that these finalists (listed here) represent 27 converters and 37 brand owners.
Of course, all these finalists will be eager to learn the ultimate ranking of their entries, but they’ll have to wait until November’s awards ceremony, where the medal winners will be announced and the top prizes presented.
