ADF and PCD Awards finalists revealed

THE shortlist for this year’s ADF and PCD Awards, which celebrate innovations across the aerosol, dispensing and beauty sectors, has been announced.

This year’s awards feature 14 categories. Finalists in the PCD event include submissions from the likes of Chanel, Gucci and Sephora. For the ADF awards, Tubex, Kao and Anyway Spray are among the brands in contention.

Emma Appert, marketing leader for ADF&PCD and PLD Paris 2020 said, “The ADF and PCD Awards presentation ceremony is always a highlight of the event. When we opened nominations in June we were inundated with entries, and the judging panel has been hugely impressed by the innovation on display and the quality of the submissions.

“A prevalent tech-led trend has been the growth of 3D printing. This featured in multiple categories with brands using it as a vehicle for personalisation at scale and also for premiumisation. High volume products are increasingly able to level the playing field with competitors in the luxury space in exploring creative avenues to make packaging more sophisticated.”

Organisers revealed the PCD Awards’ ‘Sustainability’ category proved so popular this year that the judging panel decided to split it into two separate awards: ‘Sustainable Development’ and ‘Onsite Refillable Devices’.

This ceremony is being hosted by TV presenter Sandra Lou and will be held on the 29th January in the PCD conference room at 3:00pm, where all visitors to ADF&PCD and PLD Paris are welcome to attend.
