Young package was founded to invite students and creative people up to 30 years of age, and challenge them to create designs of corrugated and smooth cardboard as used in the sponsor’s packaging design. The competition was divided into two categories. The first category, “Product Package”, focused on “Package for a national product” and the second one, “Different View”, brought this year the theme called “Book as a product for words”.
