2014 FAI Young Artists Contest winners revealed

2.1 OTGONBAYAN MGL 1Youngsters from China, Japan, Mongolia, Nepal, Russia, Turkey, Ukraine and USA are among the winners of the 2014 FAI Young Artists Contest, which every year awards FAI Medals and Diplomas to artists in three age categories from 6 to 17 years old.

Competition was fierce, not only because of the quality of the artworks, but also due to the significant rise in participation: the number of FAI Members taking part in the contest soared from 14 in 2013 to 21 in 2014 with the involvement Bulgaria, Canada, China, Czech Republic, France, Finland, India, Italy, Japan, Libya, Lithuania, Mongolia, Nepal, Poland, Qatar, Russia, Serbia, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine and USA.

“We are delighted that this year’s theme, “Flying to Save Lives”, was so inspirational. The paintings are of excellent quality and we are honoured to award Medals and Diplomas to such talented youngsters,” FAI Young Artists Contest Coordinator Suzie Gebb stated. “Twenty-one FAI Members participated in this year’s contest, some of them – Turkey, Switzerland and USA – having received between 5,000 and 10,000 entries. We also noticed with pleasure that many new countries such as Egypt, Libya and Mongolia joined the contest for the first time. We also received entries from Sri Lanka which sadly could not be taken into account as the contest is reserved for FAI Members, but hopefully this country will join the FAI and participate next year.”

About the FAI Young Artists Contest

The FAI Young Artists Contest has been organised every year since 1986. It is an international art contest for youngsters between the ages of 6 and 17.

FAI Members make arrangements in each country for a national competition, or similar process of selection, for young people resident in their countries. The national winners are then submitted to the International Jury. A different theme is chosen every year to inspire the young artists and reflect the many facets of air sports. The theme for 2014 was “Flying to Save Lives”.
