Avery Dennison Label and Packaging Materials launched the Avery Dennison Brand Experience Contest, which will challenge designers to use originality, imagination and skill to deliver a unique brand identity from bottle to shelf for five products, including children's juice, red wine, organic coffee, salad dressing and shampoo.

In addition to receiving international recognition on TheDieline.com, the world's number one package design website, each of the five winners will receive their award at The Dieline Package Design Conference in Chicago on June 23, 2011. As title sponsor of the contest, Avery Dennison will display the winner's work in the Brand Experience Contest booth. Additionally, Avery Dennison will create a Look Book that will be shared with 2,000 global consumer packaging brand owners. Each winner also will be given a chance to make a difference through a $1,000 donation in their names to an international charity.
