International Aviation Art Contest

The 2015 International Aviation Art Contest is now underway. This year’s theme is “World Air Games.” Artists are encouraged to create a poster that captures the excitement of the FAI World Air Games Dubai. All children between the ages of 6 and 17 are invited and encouraged to participate!

Submit entries to the Wisconsin Bureau of Aeronautics for statewide judging. The top three posters in each age bracket 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.

1st Place

2nd Place

National 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners 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.

Over the years, Wisconsin has had both national and international winners. Last year, we had over 400 entries. This year, we are hoping to nearly double that in an effort to encourage young artists to become more familiar with aviation, science and engineering.

3rd Place

Entries must be postmarked to the Wisconsin Bureau of Aeronautics by Friday, January 23, 2015. We look forward to seeing your school represented in the 2015 International Aviation Art Contest!
