PIDA winners received the second highest amount of awards globally in the 2022 round of the WorldStar Packaging Awards, which is a testament to the level of innovative and intuitive packaging design that is developed in the ANZ region.

  3. Health, beauty & wellness
  4. Domestic & household
  5. Labelling & decoration
  6. Outside of the box

The four PIDA special awards are as follows:

  1. Sustainable packaging design
  2. Save food packaging design
  3. Accessible & inclusive packaging design
  4. Marketing

In addition there are four awards designed for people who have made specific contributions to the packaging industry. The four Individual People Awards include:

  1. Young packaging professional of the year
  2. Industry packaging professional of the year
  3. ABA scholarship – Certificate in packaging
