Paris, March 25, 2021. The ADF&PCD and PLD Innovation Awards reward the most outstanding packaging innovations of the year in the European market across perfume, cosmetics, personal care, premium drinks, aerosols and dispensing systems.

160 entries in competition this year

The Innovation Awards have attracted a wide range of entries for the 2021 edition. This year, the three separate Awards jury meetings were held virtually for all the jury members, and in person for the Awards Chairmen and organisers, in the context of a somewhat unusual health situation.

It should be noted that each Awards jury was expanded and included independent experts, professionals and journalists from their areas of expertise. In an eventful day, with sometimes lively exchanges and debates, all the products in the competition were examined and judged during the three separate sessions.

Christelle ANYA, Content and Community Director – Relations with brands and institutions underlines: “These jury meetings are moments of rich and exciting exchanges. These are moments of sharing that we appreciate every year as organisers of these Awards. They are all keen to evaluate the innovations of the luxury market, to share their expertise and to exchange ideas between professionals on the innovations that are in competition”.

The ADF&PCD and PLD Innovation Awards 2021: an excellent edition that will give exceptional visibility to all the winners of the three Awards, which this year presented innovations of very high quality and highlighted some very fine achievements.
