Art In Transit


Art On A Roll Art Bus Contest

WHAT IS THE THEME OF THE DESIGN CONTEST?

Participants will design a bus wrap (covering an entire 40 foot bus) promoting public transit in

Charlotte. Your design must incorporate the theme of "unity." You may interpret this in any

conceptual way that you can visually represent, and original text may be included. Some fast facts

about the Charlotte Area Transit System can be found on page 2 of the application, and please read the technical guidelines on page 3.

 

WHO CAN ENTER THE CONTEST?

The contest is open to high school and college students who are enrolled during the 2020-2021

school year. High school and college level entries will be judged separately. Submissions must be

made by individual students. Classes or other student group entries will not be accepted.

 

WHEN IS THE DEADLINE?

All entries must be received by 5:00 p.m. on March 12, 2021. Entries may be emailed to

clange@charlottenc.gov or mailed/dropped off at Charlotte Area Transit System, Attn: Chris Lange,

600 East 4th Street, Charlotte, NC 28202.

 

HOW WILL ALL THE ENTRIES BE JUDGED?

Entries will be judged by a committee consisting of transit staff members, City officials, and

local art professionals. High school and college entries will be judged separately, so there will

be two (2) winners.  When evaluating the entries, the committee will consider the following:

 

1. Does the design promote multi-modal transportation in Charlotte in specific or general terms?

 

2. Is the design eye catching and well composed?

 

3. If text is used, are the words legible and memorable?

 

ARE THERE ANY PRIZES?

A high school winner and a college winner will be announced in Spring 2021. The winners' designs

will be used to wrap two 40' CATS Buses, one for the high school winner and one for the college

winner. The wraps will remain on the vehicles for one year. Each winner will also receive a $1,000

scholarship.
