CAN YOU MATCH IT

 
WITH THE BEST?


Will you be this year’s PPG Colour Matching Competition champion?

Test yourself against the best, sharpen your colour matching skills and get the chance to represent your state at the national final and win great prizes.

Do you have what it takes to be a colour matching champion? For more than two decades, the annual PPG Colour Matching Competition has given automotive spray painting apprentices the opportunity to hone their colour theory and colour matching practical skills by competing in regional and state competitions. These are usually held between June and September.
Spots are limited so make sure you get your entry in early!


The PPG Colour Matching Competition is a fun way to get valuable colour matching experience, along with bragging rights on your mates! Win through to the national final and you could get to travel to the host city and compete for the winner’s trophy, as well as cool prizes, such as gift vouchers, SATA spray equipment and MIRKA tools. Last but not least, because this is a recognised and respected industry award, doing well can be a great way to advance your career!

Will your name be on the trophy this year?


This year each state winner will take home the
REVOLUTIONARY SATAjet X 5500 SPRAY GUN!
