The Cormack Innovation Awards are a program open to all undergraduate Industrial Design Students in Australian tertiary design education institutions.
The program has been held successfully for over 13 years and continues to remain relevant, exciting and beneficial to the educational sector as well as the entire packaging industry.
The Cormack Innovation Awards Team come together each year to research trends, consumer behaviour, environmental factors, brand positioning and current packaging issues to develop a new design brief. This design brief is then launched to the education sector and a customised timetable of student information sessions, factory tours and technical sessions are appointed.
Cormack continue their significant investment in this program for many reasons. A number of past student entrants have since taken up careers within our customers, suppliers and other areas of the packaging industry. Knowing that our program has engaged a bright young mind to enter our sector is very rewarding.
The relationships we have with our customers are strengthened by the level of innovative designs we can present to their brands, the involvement they have in our judging panel and the enjoyment from attending such an interesting and enjoyable event.
The Awards Night is now firmly etched on the packaging arena calendar as an event not to be missed. Attended by industry professionals, media, politicians, lecturers, students and staff, the event has grown into a prestigious event.
The winning design student is recognised with awards, cheque and an invitation to participate in our paid Internship Program. Many valuable opportunities are given to our Intern with a number of exclusive tours, sessions with experienced industry professionals who freely give their knowledge as well as a broad overview of many of our business operations.
All parties involved agree that Cormack Packaging’s commitment to innovation is significant.
