The Australian Institute of Packaging is a sponsor of the Southern Cross Packaging awards because of their focus on fostering an interest in packaging in Australia's young designers and graphics students.
As usual the standard was high this year and the pack designs showed not only the skills the students have acquired but they also give an insight to FMCG marketers and packaging companies where the young consumers are focussing their attention in the fields of packaging.
This year the 3 winners in the AIP Sponsored Best Rationale Category were:
