COMPETITION OVERVIEW

The Bonnet Painting Competition was created to highlight and reward the amazing skills of the current crop of young painters while increasing awareness of the refinish sector to the next generation.

Entrants are tasked with designing and painting a bonnet that is in keeping with the design brief within their place of employment or education under the supervision of their mentor.

Entrants are asked to submit photos of their painted bonnet in addition to an overview of their process and products used.

Entries are then judged in a preliminary round before being shortlisted for the semi-finals and later the grand final where our expert panel of judges will decide the winning bonnet
