The FAI is particularly concerned with all forms of sporting and recreational aviation, including:
FAI Member organisations are responsible for making arrangements in each country for a national competition, or similar process of selection, for young people resident in their countries. Some guidelines on how to organise this are also attached. We recommend that the prizes for winners of national competitions should include visits to sport aviation airports and museums, and if possible flights in light aircraft, gliders or balloons. Each FAI Member organisation may submit to FAI a maximum of 9 paintings (3 in each years of birth category).
Address for Entries. All entries must be sent to Your Organising FAI Member Country by their deadline and not direct to the FAI.
Only entries sent by FAI Members, and which arrive in Lausanne by the closing date of 1 April 2017, will be considered by the International Jury.
All entries from FAI members (and not from individuals directly) must be received at the FAI Office by 1 April 2017 at the following address:
Fédération Aéronautique Internationale
Avenue de Rhodanie 54
Entries will be judged by an International Jury. The winners in each age group will receive Gold, Silver and Bronze Medals, together with diplomas. These medals and diplomas will be sent to the FAI Member organisations in the appropriate countries as soon as possible after judging is completed. The FAI delegates from the countries concerned will be responsible for arranging a suitable occasion for the presentation of the awards.
Entries, once received by FAI will become and remain the property of FAI, which may use them for a variety of purposes. FAI Members are therefore encouraged to make good quality colour copies of their winners' work for public relations purposes before sending the entries to Lausanne.
