East Norriton, Pa., Jan. 2, 2019 – The Philadelphia Auto Show is proud to announce the winner of its second annual poster competition. Caroline Ditzler of Methacton High School took home first place honors this year with her one-of-a-kind entry depicting the Philadelphia skyline with a bird’s-eye view of vehicles moving through the city.
“We started this competition last year as a way to connect with more members of our communities and give young artists a chance to become involved with something that has been part of the fabric of Philly for 118 years – the Philadelphia Auto Show,” said Eric Caldarale, creative director for the show. “The response has been great thus far and we look forward to expanding the program in years to come.”
Caroline was chosen as the first-place winner among 19 finalists from area schools. Second place honors went to Tess Harper of Upper Dublin High School and third place was awarded to Carlos Vega of Kensington Creative and Performing Arts High School.
The contest was open to all public high school students in the Philadelphia and Montgomery County school districts. Students were invited to submit their original 18” x 24” designs for a chance to be named the official 2019 Philadelphia Auto Show poster and have their artwork on display at this year’s event plus inside 500 surrounding auto dealerships.
As the first-place winner, Caroline will also receive a 12-inch MacBook and a letter of recognition from 2019 Philadelphia Auto Show Chairman Ian Jeffery. The 2nd place winner, Tess, will receive $500 as her prize and Carlos will receive $250 for his winning entry.
