The international jury for this year’s Vertex Awards includes renowned packaging design experts from various fields – related to packaging, design, brand strategy and innovation. This year we are fortunate to have 19 individual Jury Members across 11 countries. Without their commitment, expertise, and enthusiasm for design, our program would not be possible.
