All branded (not bulk) processed or non-processed foods and beverages sold by retail stores are eligible for participation for the best packaging award (Design Olymp Award). The products to be evaluated must be in the appropriate condition for tasting and their distinctive information must be written out correctly and clearly on the label, i.e. they must be products ready to be sold to the consumer public.
The companies that will be awarded have the right to promote their distinction, by using the award and contest logos. Products are evaluated by each member of the Committee. The general rating, on a scale of 100, is the result of the weighted average of the separate ratings.
The award categories are:
- Label award
- Packaging award
- Innovation award
- Product overall image award
The awards for each of these separate categories are the following:
- GOLD Design Olymp Award, products with ratings of 89% or more
- SILVER Design Olymp Award, products with ratings between 77% and 88%
- BRONZE Design Olymp Award, products with ratings between 65% and 76%
Panel of judges-evaluators
The judging team will consist of the Greek Graphic Designers Association, which is presided over by Mr. Tzanetos Petropouleas. The products are tested by a large panel consisting of 10 judges.
The Design Olymp Awards can support the marketing strategy followed by every food and beverage company. They serve as confirmation when promoting the superiority of your products to candidate buyers. The well-known truth that customers shop with their eyes first with the price of the product following after, is another reason to participate in the contest, since the award logo on the product’s label will help boost your sales.
Cost of participation
The cost of participation per product group (for example: yogurt) is €180 + VAT= €216 including max 4 items in the same product group (for example: yogurt with honey, yogurt with strawberry,…).
If you are participating with more than 4 samples in the same product group, the cost is €50 + 20% VAT for every participation after the 4th one.
