(Press Release) PADOVA – Italian lifestyle eyewear brand Carrera has announced the winners of its “Maverick” casting.

More than 1,000 musicians, athletes and visual artists entered the casting from across the globe. The judges chose one grand prize winner and two winners that submitted the most creative entries that best reflected Carrera’s Maverick spirit.

Danee Marmolejo | Grand Winner
The Athlete from Mexico

Danee literally runs free through life. Dancing on his own while creating a true connection with his surroundings, every bench, wall, gap and stairway is an opportunity for him to improve. He has the Maverick moves – fearless, creative and unpredictable.

Danee wins the opportunity to be part of a Maverick video production with Jared Leto.

Matt Dean | Winner
The Visual Artist from USA

Street art muralist Matt likes to express himself in big formats. Instead of seeing just walls or mattresses, he sees opportunities to create – canvases waiting to be filled with true meaning, involving the community in his art.

Siaira Harris | Winner
The Musician from USA

Siaira strives to be her authentic self in everything she does, whether that’s art, music or fashion. Besides contributing to culture while inspiring others, look at her style – a true Maverick all the way!
