Piotr Cinski, owner of Polish car wrapping specialist Pentagraf, has won the 2013 Global Wrap Cup Masters competition, held at Fespa in London last month, and has been crowned Global Wrap Cup Champion.
Cinski competed against 15 other finalists from around the world to take the coveted title along with €9,500 (£8,000) worth of prizes.
The final was held on 29 June, the last day of Fespa London, the wide-format expo’s 50th show, and attracted a large audience from the show’s 22,000 visitors, around 13,500 of which were overseas attendees.
Cinski, along with Dutch team-mate Rob Buursen of 12Wrap, part of Netherlands-based advertising firm Jabe Reclame, also took third place in the Nations Cup wrapping event, in which teams of two battled it out for best team performance.
Cinski said: "It was a pleasure and honour to compete arm to arm with the best installers from around the world. I would like to thank the competitors, judges, sponsors and everyone else that was involved in making the event happen."
The Wrap Cup was first introduced at Fespa 2010 in Munich and has proved an increasingly popular feature of the wide-format show.
Duncan MacOwan, Fespa’s head of events and new media, said: "The Wrap Cup Masters is always an exciting and fast-paced competition and this year has been no exception. With the addition of the Cup of Nations we’ve watched some of the world’s best vehicle wrapping superstars battle it out providing a crowd magnet."
