About the competition

Each year the PDA hosts the Premier Apprentice/Trainee Trophy Awards and invites young painters and decorators from across the UK to put their skills to the test. 

The competition is a practical test of complex setting out, free brush work on straights and curves, special effects, stencil application and adhesive vinyl application and provides an awarding and challenging experience whilst encourage best practice and talent. 

Three finalists will be invited to the prestigious Premier Trophy Awards Luncheon where they will win great prizes but only one will be crowned 'PDA Apprentice/Trainee of the Year' - it could be you.
