Pentawards unveils largest and most diverse jury yet for 2021 awards.
The 2021 Pentawards will bring together 40 leading creative minds, includes our own Creative farmer Patrick De Grande to judge and celebrate best-in-class packaging design from across the globe.
With new categories and over 70 sub-categories available for this year’s competition, the mix of sectors, cultures and specialisms from this wider group will be even more important in providing invaluable feedback on the entries.
Adam Ryan, Head of Pentawards, commented: “In the last 14 years, the Pentawards has established itself as the leading voice recognising excellence around the world in packaging design. As part of a global community, we owe it to our colleagues and peers to ensure that our judging panel reflects as diverse a range of perspectives as possible.”
Clem Halpin, President of the Pentawards jury and Design Lead Taxi Studio added, “Last year was massively influenced by our response to the pandemic. My hope is that new ways of working and collaborating will lead to an explosion of original work and new thinking - as problem solvers we have a natural ability to adapt. Our jury is larger and more diverse than it ever has been as we strive to reflect the global nature of the Pentawards. I can't wait for this year, it's a privilege to be involved in such an inspiring programme with so many talented people!”
Entries for the competition open on 1st February, and the 2021 Shortlist will be revealed on 28 May.
