Contra Vision announces the winners of our 4th Contra Vision International Wrap Artists™ Competition at SGIA Las Vegas.
Contra Vision sponsored an international competition to find the best see-through window graphics across our international markets and we are delighted to announce the winners.
We have had a range of exciting and creative entries which showcase how Contra Vision® Perforated Window Film or other see-through technology can be used across a range of media from creating stunning advertisements or signs to wrapping transit vehicles, entrance doors or partitions; effectively turning any area of glass into a giant billboard.
The entries covered five main categories, building wraps, vehicle wraps, transit advertising, best creative and a special category of innovative use, with an additional winner of the overall best application, chosen from the five category winners.
Our winners demonstrate the best applications worldwide and prove the truly international reach of the Contra Vision® range of products. Many thanks to all those who entered and our network of distributors and printers who enable us to keep developing and expanding the see-through graphics industry.
