BASF has opened declared the battle open for the 2020 R-M Best Painter contest.

Talented and passionate painters from the collision repair industry from across Canada and the U.S. will have the opportunity to compete in the North American finals to be held in Whitehouse, Ohio from February 27-29, 2020. The winner will be named R-M’s North America Best Painter. Sponsored by BASF, the winner will represent North America and compete against fifteen other finalists at the International Finals that will be held later this year in Paris, France.

The Ohio competition will be judged by a panel of head trainers and industry experts from North America. Special focus will be on two primary categories:

  • Digital competency and fast productive solutions, demonstrating the use of UV technology during the damage repair process
  • Safety and sustainability, demonstrating the best safety practices and sustainable processes, including use of the R-M Onyx HD Waterborne system

Myles Veljacic from British Columbia had bagged the third place at the International R-M Best Painter Contest in 2016 in Clermont, France.

“It was an unbelievable experience,” noted Veljacic. “The competition was very tight. I was extremely happy to keep up with fourteen of the best painters in the industry.”

“This is a really exciting time for BASF,” said Jane Niemi, Marketing Manager for BASF Refinish. “We get to witness these young painters do their best work using our paint while our own technical experts judge their work. BASF is proud to support the knowledge and product needed to make this event a success.”

Interested painters can now apply online in order to participate in the North American finals.
