Submissions will be recognized and displayed via select social media channels throughout the contest. After the contest closes on September 15, 2016, six “Celebrity Picks” will be selected by industry celebrities who will vote for their favorites based on creativity, execution and degree of difficulty. In addition, six “Fan Favorites” will be chosen by fans based on the number of photo “likes” that these favorites received on Axalta’s Instagram page. Finally, one “Best-in-Show” grand prizewinner will be selected from the six “Celebrity Picks.”
