(Mentor, Ohio) September 19, 2014 – Avery Dennison announced today that public voting in the “Wrap Like a King” Challenge featuring Avery Dennison® Supreme Wrapping Films is open. Six professional judges have narrowed the 2014 car wrap entries down to 32 finalists. These top car wraps will compete through four rounds of public voting, ultimately crowning the grand prize, “Fan Favorite” Award.
Voters in the Challenge can choose their favorite entries from the Top 32 at www.wraplikeaking.com. Entries with the most votes at the end of each round will move to the next round of competition. The vehicle wrap entry with the most votes in the final round of voting will win the title of “Fan Favorite” and an all-expense paid trip to SEMA in Las Vegas.
All voters, from all rounds, will be entered into a drawing to win a grand prize, a $150 Croftgate gift card. Voters will also be chosen randomly in all rounds of public voting to win multiple Croftgate gift cards.
“The voters will have a tough decision picking their favorite this year. I’ve been amazed at the creativity shown by installers using a variety of our Supreme Wrap Films and Conform Chrome,” said Erin Harmon, North America segment manager, Graphics Solutions at Avery Dennison. “The installers really stepped up their game in our second annual Challenge.”
Two winners will be crowned in the 2014 Wrap Like a King Challenge. The Judges’ Choice and Fan Favorite Award grand prize winners will be announced October 13. Both award winners will receive an all-expense paid trip to the 2014 SEMA Show to be featured in the West Coast Customs booth.
