Calling all artists between the ages of 6 and 17, the International Aviation Art Contest is now underway! This year’s theme is “Beyond The Clouds.”
The world of aviation is always changing as each new generation of pilots and designers bring their vision of flight to the world. Now it’s your time to grab your favorite art supplies and turn your imagination loose. Create a work of art that celebrates the adventures and excitement only available in that special place beyond the clouds.
Entries will be judged on the creative use of the theme in relation to the aviation world. The top three entries in each age group will advance to the national competition and receive the following awards:
1st Place: $100 art supply gift certificate or an airplane ride for the winner and a guest.
2nd Place: $75 art supply gift certificate.
3rd Place: $50 art supply gift certificate.
National 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners will receive certificates, ribbons, a framed reproduction of their artwork, and advance to the international competition where entrants compete for certificates and gold, silver or bronze medals.
