CATS asked North and South Carolina residents to submit original artwork with the theme: What Moves You? Entries were judged and first, second and third place winners were selected by a committee of transit staff members and local art professionals based on the following criteria:

  1. Does the design address the theme and promote multi-modal transportation in Charlotte in specific or general terms?
  2. Is the design eye-catching and well-composed?
  3. Is text absent from the design?

“I included both angular shapes suggesting an urban landscape and natural forms. I intended to convey activity and movement," first-place winner Scott Partridge said. "I depicted modes of transit including walking, biking, wheelchair, bus, train and flying.”
