The 8th Annual Vertex Awards competition is now open for entries. The Vertex Awards is the first and only global competition devoted exclusively to private band packaging design. It is open to the international community involved in the creation and marketing of private brands. To be eligible for judging, designs must have been created or released from November 1, 2019, to November 30, 2020.

This year, Vertex celebrates its eighth year of recognizing stunning design, innovation, and excellence. In that time, we’ve awarded more than 500 trophies to over 100 retailers and 79 agencies from 57 countries around the world.

The Vertex Awards evaluates and updates the categories yearly to mirror the industry landscape. This year the competition has added two new categories to recognize the growing CBD and Hemp markets. These categories are CBD / Hemp: Grocery and CBD / Hemp: Health & Beauty.

Winners will be honored May 12-13 at the virtual My Private Brand Design Summit. The winners will then be featured on My Private Brand, Global Retail Brands, and The Vertex Awards. Each year the winning designs from the Vertex Awards are also published in a hardcover book available on Amazon.
