With Great Regret

Farécla has had to postpone the 2020 Apprentice & Student Bonnet Painting Competition in the light of the current COVID-19 situation.

Colleges being closed and some bodyshops either closing or furloughing workers has made it impractical to run the competition to its conclusion this year.

Farécla intend to bring back the competition in 2021 and will be contacting declared entrants received to date via their sponsors to confirm this decision and advise that they will be valid to take part in the 2021 competition; even if by then they will have completed their apprenticeship.

A Farécla spokesperson said:

“This is a bitter pill to swallow, but our commitment to recognising talented young painters remains, and the competition will be back next year better and stronger than ever.”
