Printers of sign and displays can now enter Contra Vision’s 3rd International Wrap Artists Competition, with Australian dealer Starleaton opening the field to local wrappers.

According to Starleaton Digital Solutions, wrap printers using Contra Vision products have until 16 September to get their best work packed and submitted.

Nigel Spicer, general manager of Cactus Imaging says it will definitely be participating in this competition, but has yet to chose an entry.

“Participating in any industry awards is always good for us, and the industry in general. We have done a few building wraps, but nothing that comes to mind in recent months. Most of our wrap printing with Contra Vision products has been on bus and retail windows,” he says.

Cactus’ stage wrapping for Oprah Winfrey’s Opera House stage, that won gold at the 2nd HP Scitex awards, will not be making an appearance.

The overall prize winner gets a trip to the SGIA 2011 Expo in New Orleans this October plus USD$1,000 in cash and a trophy. The competition has six categories, plus the overall winner, including:

  • Best Building Wrap
  • Best Vehicle Wrap
  • Best Point-of-purchase
  • Best Interior Design
  • Best Entrance Door

Sign and display printers can enter the awards by sending in the wrap graphics, videoing or photographing their finished creations and entering on the form that can be found here.

All entries must be real commercial jobs produced and can be submitted by either the project creative designer or the image producer with the prize going to either the design or imaging company. Material used for the see-through window film must be either Contra Vision or a Contra Vision licensed product.
