The Student Video Award celebrates sustainability again

The Student Video Award is back after its successful launch last year and entries for the 2021 awards can now be submitted

After a good start last year, the submission period for the Pro Carton Student Video Award has officially begun. Students from all over Europe who are currently studying full-time are invited to give free rein to their creativity and develop unconventional concepts for a chance to win €5,000 in prize money.
In the first year of the competition, students from 13 European countries took part and created a video about the benefits of cardboard and cardboard packaging.
Participation in the competition is free of charge. All participants need to do is demonstrate their passion for sustainable packaging by submitting a short video illustrating the benefits of using cardboard and cardboard packaging.
The video must be between 30 seconds and two and a half minutes long. Otherwise, the task is open to free interpretation to ensure as much scope for imaginative ideas as possible.
In 2020, the jury of experts from both the film and cardboard sectors selected two worthy winners. The first winning entry focused on the recyclability of cartonboard, while the second winning entry highlighted the properties of cartonboard material using ASMR techniques.
The winners were announced during the ECMA Awards Ceremony and Pro Carton 2020 Carton E-vent and Awards Ceremony
Tony Hitchin, General Manager at Pro Carton said, "We are delighted that the Student Video Award will be held again this year following its launch in 2020. The competition was very well received across Europe, particularly by film and media students, and despite the pandemic restrictions we received many high quality entries. Students can shoot their video with a smartphone or a digital camcorder. The most important thing is the basic creative concept. Products and packaging made of cardboard have many features and advantages in terms of functionality and aesthetics, but of course also in terms of their environmental friendliness. With the possible loosening of the lockdowns within the next few months, students will really be able to bring their ideas to life and we are very excited to see what surprises this year's awards have in store!"
Competition details:
The competition is open to all full-time students from across Europe. Up to four students can enter together. All entries must be submitted by 25 June 2021.
