LAA Launches ‘Kids at Home – Aviation Art Competition’

An urgent message to bored, aviation-minded, kids, parents and grandparents!

The Light Aircraft Association has launched a new Aviation Art Competition which will give young people at home an opportunity to use their creative skills to design a flying machine.

The competition is sponsored by the Light Aircraft Association, the Shuttleworth Collection and the Guild of Aviation Artists. Entries, in three age categories; 5-8, 9-12 and 13-15, can be drawn, painted or computer generated. They should be posted to the Light Aircraft Association’s headquarters (Turweston Aerodrome, Brackley, Northants NN13 5YD) by Tuesday 30th June 2020. Selected entries will be displayed on the LAA’s Facebook page and website in the coming weeks.

Later, they will be judged by experts from the LAA, Shuttleworh Collection and the Guild of Aviation Artists. Prizes will include tickets for the prize winner and family to visit one of the Shuttleworth Collection’s spectacular air shows at Old Warden in Bedfordshire.

Said Anne Hughes, LAA Art Competition Coordinator: “For the last three years the LAA has facilitated a UK Young People’s Aviation Art Competition, with the winning entries forwarded to the FAI’s global contest each May. 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! Meantime, I hope everyone has some fun creating their piece of artwork!”

Please see the LAA website www.lightaircraftassociation.co.uk and LAA Facebook page for further details and a copy of the poster to circulate and print to give added inspiration!

I've passed this on. Great idea.




Just a picky detail: could the poster not have stated 'aeroplane'?

Tin hat, etc....

Well Ch,Ch.,

That would then be a leading requirement as 'plane indicates a wing, whereas i read the invitation to mean summat wot flies, but the ''how'' might bring forth some great new concept.

As in :- "Out of the mouths of babes and sucklings...."
