2014 AIP SCHOLARSHIP WINNER ANNOUNCED

The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) has announced the winner of the 2014 AIP Scholarship.

Anuj K Dhawan, a finalist for the Cormack Innovation Awards, is a third year student studying Industrial Design at the University of NSW.

“Anuj Dhawan was selected because he has a keenness to expand his education in the packaging realm,” said National AIP President Ralph Moyle.

Mr Dhawan said winning the AIP scholarship will give him valuable exposure to new technologies, methods, and considerations within packaging.

“I want to absorb information,” he said. “A designer's education is never complete – the industry changes so rapidly and so often that setting your sights on one specific detail can result in you missing some incredible opportunities for growth.”

When he graduates from the University of NSW at the end of the year, Mr Dhawan hopes to find a packaging role that will enable him to balance his interest in customer experience with that of successful functionality.

Mr Moyle said Mr Dhawan is an exceptional candidate and the AIP looks forward to him become an outstanding packaging technologist.

He acknowledged Cormack Packaging for its on-going support in not only recognising talented and skilled young designers but also encouraging them to further their careers in the packaging industry.

The Cormack Innovation Awards were launched 13 years ago and each year a new design brief is presented to Industrial Design Students to engage, teach and consider various packaging options and obstacles.

For most students it is the first time they have worked with plastics and also considered that packaging may create career opportunities.

The Cormack Innovation Award scholarship complements other programs initiated by the AIP including, the APPMA scholarship for the Diploma in Packaging Technology.
