Pentawards, a packaging design competition, has revealed its Top 20 Winners Table; the design agencies, brands, freelancers, universities, packaging suppliers and manufacturers that have accumulated the most Pentawards points since 2007.
When each Pentaward ranking is given a corresponding point score–five for Diamond, through to one for Bronze–Turner Duckworth, which has worked for major names including McDonald’s, Amazon and Coca-Cola, tops the Pentawards Top 20 Winners Table with 115 points.
Mousegraphics, Design Bridge, forceMAJEURE and Stranger & Stranger are the top five, scoring 98, 86, 69 and 65, respectively.
The Top 20 Winners Table is updated each year, as awards are decided and assigned by the judging panel, which is made up of experts from leading brands and design agencies, graphic designers, packaging specialists and branding professionals.
For 2020, the panel includes more female jurors than ever before, as well as its most diverse collection of experts, drawing from 18 countries. Some of the brands deciding the fate of this year’s entries include Amazon, Facebook, Nestlé, Pearlfisher, Heineken, Bulletproof, Microsoft and Superunion.

It doesn’t just mean that we have a shelf full of shiny trophies but it’s also testament to the relentless spirit of our team and their ongoing commitment that only the best is good enough. Thank you, Pentawards, we’re proud to be named your Number 1.”
“Firstly a huge congratulations to the team at Turner Duckworth,” Head of Pentawards Adam Ryan said. “It is no mean feat winning any Pentaward, let alone amassing 115 points in just 13 years. A fantastic achievement! It also goes to show that it doesn’t take long to move up the rankings, which should be encouraging to those brands and agencies that want to break into the top 20. To those that are thinking about entering a design for the first time in 2020, we could be talking about you in years to come, just take that first step.”
Ryan concludes, “With just three weeks to go, anyone thinking of entering needs to do so quickly. The entire Pentawards experience is designed to make every entrant feels as though they are getting something out of the process, whether that is an actual award, constructive feedback, unrivalled networking opportunities or simply meeting their role models. It has something for everyone and might just potentially transform their future thinking. Don’t wait, get that entry in now.”
