What's new for 2025?

The Pharmapack Awards seek to recognise excellence in packaging or drug delivery solutions from pharmaceutical, veterinary, biopharma or OEM companies. We are looking for new or recently commercialised concepts which demonstrate true innovation in materials, design, technologies or solutions.

Categories for 2025
This year, the Pharmapack Awards will recognise excellence across the following categories along with the judges:
Delivery & Device Innovation

This category aims to recognise innovative approaches to safe and effective drug administration, across ophthalmic, parenteral, oral, respiratory, transdermal, and topical drug delivery solutions.

Packaging Innovation

This category aims to recognise innovation in technologies, products, materials, and services relating to primary, secondary, and tertiary packaging solutions for finished drug forms.

Start-Up Innovation

This award looks to celebrate and promote those companies who are leading the way for the future of packaging. We want to recognise and celebrate the achievements of small or micro enterprises who have had a great idea, spotted the opportunity and taken the risks to launch a new product or service.

We are looking for entries which demonstrate a clear promise of innovation, growth or sustainable development in pharma. We understand that Start-Ups are often at different stages of development, and accept entries across proof of concept, prototype or commercialised stage.


Recognising products and solutions which prioritise recyclability, environmental awareness, and a reduced carbon footprint.

The Jury will consider entries that have received market authorization from a qualified national authority for a newly commercialized medicinal product after January 2024.
