The Light Aircraft Association has launched a new Aviation Art Competition for kids between 5 and 15 years of age.
The competition comes at a very useful time for millions of kids forced to stay at home because of the coronavirus lockdown measures.
Entries must be posted to the Light Aircraft Association’s headquarters (Turweston Aerodrome, Brackley, Northants NN13 5YD, UK) or hard-copy versions can be scanned and sent in to firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday 30 June 2020.
Launching the initiative Anne Hughes, LAA Art Competition Coordinator, said: “For the last three years the LAA has facilitated a UK Young People’s Aviation Art Competition, with the winning entries forwarded to the global contest held each May by the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale.
“We hope that, in these difficult times, this competition will inspire the pilots, engineers or designers of the future to continue to look toward the world of aviation and perhaps give parents something different to keep their kids busy!”
Entries, in three age categories (5-8, 9-12 and 13-15 years old), can be drawn, painted or computer generated.
- 1 Ground tests for ZeroAvia's 19-seater’s eco-engine
- 2 Flight test: Piper PA-23-250 Aztec
- 3 100 years of Fournier: a history of aviation’s original ‘green’ promoter
They will be judged by experts from the LAA, Shuttleworh Collection and the Guild of Aviation Artists.
