Wrap installers from 53 countries across the world were invited to submit full-print or color-change wrap projects using vinyl from the Avery Dennison Supreme Wrapping Film portfolio, including Conform Chrome, MPI 1105 Supercast Digital film or a combination to be evaluated against their regional peers by an international panel of eight judges. The judges reviewed every submission and evaluated each project by the following criteria: visual transformation (difference between the before-and-after photos submitted); quality of workmanship and skill level of installation; overall public appeal; and uniqueness of the design.
The 2019 panel of judges included: Justin Pate of The Wrap Institute; Myles Kovacs of DUB Magazine; Yianni Charalambous of Yiannimize; Eddy Speelman of Speelman Graphic Applications; Molly Waters of Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions; Peter Wright of Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions; Sarel Krüger of Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions; and Frank Marquart of Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions.
