Japanese airline, ANA (All Nippon Airways) has recently announced a Design Contest to let the public design the livery for one of its Boeing 767-300 jumbo jets! The contest is launched in commemoration of ANA’s upcoming 60th anniversary. Anyone, – regardless of age, nationality, or artistic skill – is free to submit a design for consideration. Kids of all ages can even download and print out a blank airplane template and ‘paint’ the plane with crayons. They can then scan and upload their creative genius, or even send their drawings to ANA by snail mail (normal post). Some of the more skilled artists may prefer to do it all digitally using their favorite digital drawing software package. So, all of you talented Chinese and Asia Pacific designers… what are you waiting for? Get to drawing!
