Avery Dennison® Graphics Solutions ‘Wrap Like a King’ Challenge is Back for 2021 — And Open for Vehicle Wrap Submissions


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

Beginning September 1, wrap installers from over 40 countries are invited to submit their best full print or color change vehicle wrapping projects. 

“In 2019, over 150 installers entered the challenge,” Abby Monnot, Marketing Director, Graphics said. “It’s great to be back. Wrap Like a King is an excellent 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 recognized by peers and customers.” 

The combined prize packages for 2021 Regional and Continental winners exceed $30,000. The three Continental winners will also be invited to each select a charity to receive a $1,000 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,” Monnot said.
