Entries now open for The Canmaker Cans of the Year 2021

The Canmaker magazine is now accepting entries into the 2021 Cans of the Year awards, and is inviting canmakers from across the world to submit their best and most innovative metal packaging.

The full spectrum of metal packaging is represented at the awards, with categories covering aerosol cans; two-piece beverage cans; three-piece beverage cans; metal bottles; decoration and print quality; ends, caps and closures; fancy cans; three-piece food cans; general line; and prototypes.

The title of overall Can of the Year for 2020 was awarded to UK-based Crown Packaging, for its metal secondary packaging produced for spirit company Fishers Gin. The tin, which also won the Gold award in the fancy cans category, was praised by the panel of industry judges for the embossed ‘netting’ effect, designed to represent the coastal location of Aldeburgh in Suffolk, where Fishers Gin is based.
