The Glass Packaging Institute (GPI), the trade association representing the North American glass container industry, is accepting entries for the 2014 Clear Choice Awards.

The entry deadline to submit works for consideration is September 7, 2014.

Each year, the awards programme honours industry excellence by recognizing new glass packages that demonstrate the highest quality in terms of innovation, package design, and shelf impact.

Entries for the awards are judged by a distinguished panel of judges, including prominent members of the glass container industry, media and academia, who have an eye for aesthetics, and a clear vision for the future of glass packaging.

This year’s competition will also feature a People’s Choice Award, allowing contestants to showcase their products to larger audiences.

Winners will be announced at Pack Expo, an industry trade show, which will take place on the 2nd – 5th November 2014. Winning products will also be displayed at the event, giving winners the opportunity to present their work to top industry representatives.
