The Young Designers competition fosters the creativity and innovation of future package design.
Sponsorship directly supports the development of tomorrow's industry designers and is a great way to promote your business.
Our exciting, fast-moving industry always needs innovative new talent, and as an industry leader, you can help! Let’s work together to inspire today’s young designers to join our ranks.
Partner with IBA to host our annual awards to honor young designers from top-rated art and design colleges across the U.S. and Canada. Get involved by sponsoring to foster young talent and keep beauty creative. Our annual competition is a uniquely innovative curriculum-based program where the faculty closely integrates the competition directives into their students’ coursework. Students have two months to create an innovative beauty product on a designated package type which
changes each year.
Each student entry must fully define the brand concept with industry-compliant label and package designs. A panel of industry professionals judges designs submitted by each participating school, and then cash awards are presented during our awards dinner. Most importantly, the students get a chance to view our industry, understand its inner workings, and connect with its leaders – like you! Learn more here.
This program allows both existing industry professionals and future innovators to come together. Together, we can keep beauty creative.
