2022 Annual NIPHLE Design Competition 

CALL FOR NOMINATIONS: NIPHLE DESIGN AWARDS

 

The NIPHLE Design Awards are presented each spring at the annual NIPHLE national training to persons who have made outstanding contributions to government and industry packaging design.  The FY2022 NIPHLE national training will be held at the Sheraton Midwest City Hotel at the Reed Center Midwest City, OK.  Recipients may be from either government or industry.

 

Nominations must state the category in which the nominee is to be judged and include the name, address, phone number, employer, and the position title of both the nominee and the nominator.  Sufficient detailed information about the nominee’s design must be provided to allow the judges to score the design package without additional research to obtain information about the type and value of their design.

 

Anyone may submit a nomination except members of the design committee.  Any individual in the packaging, materials handling or logistics field may be nominated, whether they are a member of NIPHLE or not.  Judging is based solely on the nominee’s design package. The submitted design should have been completed sometime within calendar FY2021.  Awards are provided to the first, second and third place packages. The overall best nomination package regardless of category will be awarded the Lapidus Trophy instead of 1st place as the best overall design submitted.  Nominations should be limited to not more than 6 pages and 4 photos using the format below. Winners may display their package at the NIPHLE training.  Logistics costs in each category will be the responsibility of the organization.

 

Awards packages can be submitted electronically to Mr. Michael Werneke at mdwerneke@earthlink.net, or by mail to 5903 Ridgeway Drive, Grand Prairie, TX 75052. Deadline for receipt of package submission is 1 March 2022.
