There will be creative rounds that will require competitors to wrap unusual objects to demonstrate their ability and skills.

As the competition progresses, competitors will be required to wrap more parts of the car. Afterwards, 4 competitors will participate in the 2 final rounds. The first final round will focus on tehcnical skills, working methods and positions and the second final round will be a creative round where the wrappers’  creativity will be judged.

That is why we decided to organise the World Wrap Masters Netherlands 2023 for the second time. We want to demonstrate how film wrapping on vehicles works and why this is such a unique profession that requires a vast amount of knowledge and experience to gain a successful result. Furthermore, we wanted to seize the opportunity to connect the wrap community with the FESPA community and to inspire new wrappers to grow and develop in this profession. At FESPA we also continue to strive to work together to create a sustainable and durable future within the print and sign industry.”
