This project "breaks through", it shows great freedom and creativity: this is a unique approach, out of the box; it embodies the young spirit of the contest.

The winner will be invited to a weekend with the Chevrolet team to discover the organization of such an event and see his decorated car racing. Keep watching..

SECOND PRIZE

Rafael Goncalves and Ricardo Trindade from IADE - Instituto de Artes Visuais Design e Marketing, Portugal

The panel of judges' final appreciation: This project has great visual appeal, it is very strong on branding and emphasizes both the spirit of Chevrolet and of the competition.

THIRD PRIZE

Clemence Pineton de Chambrun from Emile Cohl, France

The panel of judges' final appreciation: We like the idea: building the decoration upon a visual interpretation of speed.

This was the first step of the European competition. On July 30, another panel of judges (composed by artists, designers, journalists) from several European countries will meet in Zurich home of Chevrolet Europe - to elect the best projects in the four other disciplines of the competition (Fashion, Interior Design, Photography and Video).
