R-M®, BASF's premium automotive refinish paint brand, supports the talents of the next generation of spray painters in the industry. Due to ongoing social distancing measures in place in many countries, R-M today announces that the international final of 13th R-M Best Painter Contest will be postponed to 2022. For this interim period, R-M also announces that a series of competitive activities, challenges and e-learnings will take place to support the contest's motto of "Driving digital competency and eco-efficient solutions". Dubbed the "R-M Best Painter Design Challenge 2021", this new program will focus on the combination of quick processes, digital solutions and sustainability. The R-M Best Painter Design Challenge 2021 will kick off in May 2021 with a creative painting task.
