  • APD Outstanding Contribution Awards
At APD TAIPEI 2017, TPDA former chairman Owen brought forth a suggestion to show our appreciation and gratitude to the people who have greatly contributed to APD. This led to the birth of APD Outstanding Contribution Awards.
Established in 1993, APD has not only weaved opportunities for participating organizations to improve and evolve their package design, but has also created countless intercultural exchanges across countries. We would thus like to express our sense of gratitude to our respected APD predecessors with the APD Outstanding Contribution Awards at APD Nara 2020.
APD will award one APD Contribution Award winner from each participating organization at APD NARA.
