These awards are the only competition that honors the year's most innovative beauty packaging in several categories including cosmetics, fragrance, personal care, skin care and innovations in sustainability.  The best in hair care, sampling/travel size, and at-home devices and tools packaging are also recognized.

Any size company can submit finished beauty and personal care products for their packaging design that were or will be introduced for retail from July 1, 2013 through June 30, 2014, including suppliers, design firms, agencies, and brand manufacturers. Designs that have been refreshed, improved, or offer new features or technologies are also eligible to participate. The deadline for IPDA submissions is April 25, 2014.

Finalists for the IPDA Awards are announced mid-May and the category winners and the IPDA Grand Award will be revealed on June 11, 2014 during the HBA Global Expo & Conference, which will be held June 10-12, 2014 at the Javits Center in New York.
