Mercedes-Benz and Cary Visual Art Design Competition!



In conjunction with Mercedes-Benz of Cary, Cary Visual Art is inviting high school students to submit innovative and beautiful designs for a wrap that will cover a Mercedes-Benz 2017 E300!

The winning student (or student team) will receive a $500 cash prize AND will have their design created into a wrap that will be unveiled at the 20th Anniversary CVA Art Ball on February 11, 2017.

The design of the car wrap should represent the “Future of Art and Technology" and how they influence one another. This theme can be taken as loosely and creatively as the students desire!

When designing the wrap, students should consider how the design will transition from one side of the car to the next. The car is sculptural, so they can use the shape of the car to enhance their designs.

A design template for the Mercedes-Benz 2017 E300 is available for download at this link. Also included are some photos of the car at different angles that can be referenced when designing.

Any high school student living in or attending school in Cary is eligible to submit a design!

Prizes Awarded will be:
1st place    $500 cash
2nd place   $100 cash
3rd place   $50 gift card

All entries must be submitted by Monday, December 12th to All entries should be submitted as a zip file with the design files plus a short essay explaining the concept of the design. Students should format their designs as Adobe InDesign files if at all possible. PDF files will also be accepted.
