Since 2012, The Vertex Awards has honored innovative private brand design that demonstrates groundbreaking solutions to consumer problems. We have proved that strategic and beautiful creative execution can produce extraordinary results.

The 8th Annual Vertex Awards competition is now open for entries. The competition will be open from Friday, November 20, 2020, to January 30, 2021. 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.

The Vertex Awards attracts the best private brand packaging worldwide, along with the best judges. Our judging panel consists of an international jury of more than a dozen world-renowned creative directors, package designers, and marketing chiefs.

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.

This year’s competition opens for entries Friday, November 20, 2020
