Deadline extended for the 2020 Packaging Innovation Awards by Dow

Midland, Mich. – Dow (NYSE:DOW) is extending the 2020 Packaging Innovation Awards entry deadline to July 17 due to the global impact of COVID-19. Submissions can still be made on the Packaging Innovation Awards website.

“Under the unprecedented circumstances the world is facing, we are delaying the entry deadline for the Packaging Innovation Awards to July 17,” said Karin Katzer, Dow’s global business initiatives marketing director for Packaging & Specialty Plastics

The extension is also out of an abundance of caution for the international panel of judges who convene each year for the hands-on evaluation, which Dow hopes to conduct later in 2020.

Dow will continue to share updates on the Packaging Innovation Awards website.

“Each year, Dow sponsors the Packaging Innovation Awards to recognize exceptional work across the packaging landscape and our hope is to continue that work in 2020. The Dow team extends well wishes to everyone in the industry and looks forward to another exciting year of packaging innovation achievements.”
