Packaging Innovation Contest De Gouden Noot

 

De Gouden Noot is the world’s most competitive packaging innovation contest. With De Gouden Noot the NVC Netherlands Packaging Centre stimulates ‘holistic’ innovations in packaging and packaged products. There are no categories in this contest, like the type of material, the way of communication or the kind of packaged product. On the contrary: each entry is judged on its over-all level of innovation. Click here for the registration form and read the General Terms and Conditions here. Please contact Ger Standhardt, NVC manager Knowledge Development and Innovation Projects, for more information.



De Gouden Noot 2018
Registration is now open for the 29th edition of De Gouden Noot. In 2018 it will be 60 years since the contest was established. Winning the contest brings a wealth of international publicity and acknowledges the work put into the packaging. The unique trophy with a solid golden walnut is the symbol of the contest.

The judging takes place in two rounds. In the first judging round, the jury selects ten of the maximum of 40 entries that merit an award: the Finalists.  In the second judging round the jury decides which entries will win the Bronzen (bronze), Zilveren (silver) or De Gouden (gold) Noot. In this round the submitters get the opportunity to present their entry in the presence of the jury. The winner will be announced at the Award Ceremony on Thursday 22 November 2018. Master of ceremony is Francesca Vanthielen.

All winners and finalists are promoted by the NVC for two years, from the moment they have reached the final. The winners and finalists of De Gouden Noot 2018 will for example be exhibited on the international packaging exhibition All4Pack 2018 in Paris.
