DuPont Performance Coatings Accepting Entries for 2014 Calendar Competition

Owners or painters of vehicles painted with DuPont Refinish, Spies Hecker, Standox, Hot Hues, or Cromax Pro products can compete for cash prizes and to have their vehicle appear in the 2014 calendar. There is no entry fee and entries can be submitted using a web-based submission process. Entrants must be at least 18 years of age at the time of entry and a legal resident of the United States or Canada. Entries may be motorized passenger automobiles (import or domestic), trucks or motorcycles, provided they are finished exclusively with any DuPont Performance Coatings brand of solvent or waterborne products. Entrants must own or have finished the vehicle entered into the competition.

Judging will be based on “best use of color,” including finish quality, technical difficulty, and design originality. Winners will be notified by May 20, 2013, from among all eligible entries received. There will be 12 winners selected, with each winner receiving a cash prize of $500. There will be one grand prize winner, selected from the 12 winners, who will receive an additional $2,000 cash prize. All winners will have a professional photo shoot of their vehicle and receive 25 copies of the 2013 calendar. The grand prize winner also will be featured on the cover of the calendar.

Entries must be made online by visiting www.dpccalendar.dupont.com, completing the competition registration form, in its entirety, and uploading two photos of the vehicle. More than one vehicle may be submitted per entrant, but each vehicle must be entered as a separate competition entry. The deadline to enter is 11:59 PM ET on April 30, 2013.
