PPG Colour Matching Competition





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 and limited spots are available so make sure you get your entry in early.

Win through and there is the opportunity to represent your state in the national final – usually held in October. Along with the chance to be crowned as PPG Colour Matching Competition champion, you can also win cool prizes, such as gift vouchers, SATA spray equipment and MIRKA tools.

THIS YEAR each state winner will take home the
REVOLUTIONARY SATAjet X 5500 spray gun!

Will your name be on the trophy this year?

Who is eligible to enter?

Any apprentice currently attending a TAFE college or other students completing an equivalent automotive spray painting apprenticeship course are strongly encouraged to ‘have a go’.

Competition format

Each contestant is provided with all the equipment and tinters they need and is given a set time period to match two colours – usually, one solid and one metallic / pearl. As well as colour matching skills, contestants are judged on safety, cleanliness and work practices.

Why enter?

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.
