IMDA Accepting Awards Competition Entries

The In-Mold Decorating Association, based in Skokie, Illinois, is accepting entries for its 13th annual IMDA Awards Competition. The association began accepting entries Feb. 1 and will close April 15.

The 2019 competition recognizes the industry’s best in-mold labeled packaging and in-mold decorated durable products. The winning entries are chosen based on creativity in design, engineering and innovation. This competition is open to companies involved in any form of in-mold labeled packaging (IML), in-mold decorated durable products (IMD) and in-mold electronics (IME).

The IMDA awards committee has restructured and condensed this year’s contest into five categories. They are:

  • Best Part Design
  • Best Label Design (includes appliques and inserts)
  • Best In-Mold Decorated Package (includes injection molded, thermoformed and blow-molded entries)
  • Best In-Mold Decorated Durable Part (includes injection molded, thermoformed and blow-molded entries)
  • Best Technical Achievement

Winners will be honored at the 2019 IMDA Symposium dinner on June 3 at the Franklin Marriott Cool Springs, Franklin, Tennessee. Entries must be received at IMDA by April 15. No entries will be accepted after that date.
