Interpretation of the 2015 theme - "Create a poster for the FAI World Air Games Dubai 2015”
In December 2015, the top air sport athletes from around the globe will travel to Dubai, UAE, to compete in the largest air sports event in the world, the FAI World Air Games. Over a period of 12 days, spectators will enjoy special locations with outstanding views of the Palm Jumeirah and the skyline of Dubai while watching world class competitions and air shows fill the sky in a dazzling display of manoeuvres that can only take place above the ground.
Airplanes and gliders will amaze the crowd with spins, loops, and dives in the aerobatic games, while powered planes will show their skills in an air navigation race. There will also be radio controlled aerobatics: the same spins, loops, and dives, but at a much smaller size. Additionally, Indoor Aero Musicals will be featured.
Spectators will feel the excitement as hang gliders compete for aerobatic ability while paragliders show off their aerobatic and landing accuracy abilities. They will see parachutists not only practice their accuracy landing but work together in incredible formation skydiving and on their canopy piloting, whereas others will showcase their skills in the indoor wind-tunnel.
Last, but certainly not least, they will see microlights and paramotors compete in slalom races as helicopter pilots show off their craft in slalom and accuracy competitions.

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 are to be sent to the organising authority in each FAI Member country, and not direct to the FAI. Only entries sent by FAI Members, and which arrive in Lausanne by the closing date of 1 April 2015, will be considered by the International Jury.
All entries must be received at the FAI Office by 1 April 2015 at the following address:

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.
