TVD Radar: Making Vinyl’s 2018 Packaging Awards for Vinyl & CD

VIA PRESS RELEASE | Now accepting entries! Submissions deadline is August 15, 2018.

The Making Vinyl Packaging Awards recognizes the importance and critical role that physical packaging plays in selling music. The larger 12″ x 12″ canvas no doubt is contributing to the vinyl format’s astounding comeback. In the age of MP3, downloads, and digital streaming, recorded music experiences diminish substantially. There’s nothing like a well-designed LP cover or a graphics-rich gatefold for a sensory connection to the sounds emanating from the speakers or headphones.

To be considered for this packaging competition, you must submit electronically through this site. There is a fee for submitting, but sliding scale discounts for multiple entries coming from submitting entities (one entry $50, two to five entries $40 each, six to ten entries $30 each, and 11 or more $20 each). Global entries are welcome. All electronic submissions must be received by Wednesday, August 15, 2018, 11:59 pm (EST). No exceptions.

Finalists will be notified by email and they will have two weeks to send two copies of each submission by Wednesday, August 29, 2018 at 5 pm (EST) to the attention of Lilly Smith c/o AIGA, 233 Broadway, Suite 1740, New York, NY 10279. No exceptions will be allowed. Submissions may come from record labels, pressing plants, brokers, packagers, printers, mastering facilities, artists, and distributors with the caveat that they fit the packaging-focused categories.
