Celebrate with YOUR TEAM when their hard work goes up against the best in the industry from around the world. What a great way to honor the work done every day within your own company!
The 2023 IMDA Awards Competition will recognize outstanding IML, IMD and IME submissions that were produced in 2022 or 2023.
Entries received from around the world showcase the best in in-mold design and technical achievement, with special recognition for innovation and sustainability.
Winners of the competition will be revealed at the 2023 Plastic Product Decorating Summit (formerly the IMDA Symposium) in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin area. In addition, watch for the winners to be prominently publicized in a variety of media and during events:
Judges evaluate overall design and complexity; integration of the in-mold element into the part or package; functionality; and innovation in the use of materials and processes. Manufacturing difficulty and complexity of the part, label, design or mold also are considered.
