Does the competition focus only on direct thin-film plastic substitutes or is it open for other forms of plastics like biodegradable plastic foams as well which could be used in packaging?

Yes, the competition is open to other materials that could be utilized in packaging, so long as it is clear that these materials can be utilized to meet the primary use-cases targeted by the prize, namely fashion polybags and single-use and resealable plastic sandwich and storage bags.

We do envision that most submissions to the prize will constitute direct “drop-in” replacements for thin-film plastics, however this is not a requirement for entering the competition.
