2020 City Art Bus Competition

Deadline November 30, 2019

International Deadline: November 30, 2019 – Transform CAT and JAUNT buses with your original designs! Tom Tom Foundation, JAUNT and Charlottesville Area Transit are looking for creative visionaries to design the 2019 City Art Buses.

From ten finalists, a public vote will determine which two designs will transform a 35’ CAT bus and a 28’ JAUNT bus into moving murals. Operating on bus lines throughout the City and County, your design is guaranteed exposure to over 200,000 people throughout the year.

Ten semifinalists will be chosen in December and the public will be given the opportunity to vote on their favorite design. The public vote will be weighted with votes from the CAT and Jaunt drivers to determine the winners.

The designers selected for the CAT bus and the Jaunt bus will each earn a $500 commission to create a vector design through Adobe Illustrator that will become a digitally printed vinyl wrap.
