Avery Dennison® “Wrap Like A King” Challenge is back for 2021 - and open for vehicle wrap submissions

September 02, 2021

Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions has announced the return of the Wrap Like A King Challenge. This year’s vehicle wrap competition will run from September 1st to October 31, 2021. A new special concept called ‘Local Edition’ has been launched for the first time, with awards for 12 Regional Wrap Kings and three Continent Wrap Kings.

From September 1st wrap installers from over 40 countries are invited to submit their best full print or colour change vehicle wrapping projects.

In 2019 over 150 installers entered the challenge. It’s great to be back. Wrap Like a King is a great opportunity for installers to showcase their best work. Their projects will be judged by a global jury for the chance to win thousands of dollars in prizes, and be recognised by peers and customers."

Li Wen, senior director and general manager Graphics EMENA

The combined 2021 prize packages for Regional and Continental winners exceed $30,000. The three Continental winners will also be invited to each select a charity to receive a $1000 donation in the name of the winner.

“Giving back to the community is important to Avery Dennison. We are thrilled to extend this to the communities of the three winners of the Wrap Like a King 2021 competition,” said Li Wen.
