Spectacular 'Griffin' Ornithopter Wins Special LAA Art Award for 15 Year-old Nick Harder

Nick Harder's winning entry

10th July 2020

A spectacular winner has emerged from the LAA 'Kids at Home' aviation art competition organised for five to 15 year-olds conjunction with the Shuttleworth Collection and Guild of Aviation Artists. The competition was launched in March to encourage children deprived of school and with parents looking for activities to keep them amused, to try their hand at designing or drawing an aircraft.

An eye-catching 'e-poster' from Phil Jackson of GAvA triggered a bumper response of young people putting pencils, crayons and felt tips to paper, with entries being posted or scanned and e-mailed to LAA HQ.

The stand-out entry was the 'Griffin' ornithopter, designed by 15 year-old Nick Harder. His design would be lifted to altitude by a helium balloon, with solar-rechargeable electric power providing lift and thrust via the flapping wings.

A special invitation

"The picture's presentation and creativity made it stand apart" said LAA CEO Steve Slater. "We were so impressed that in addition to the main prize of a family ticket for an Old Warden Air Show in 2021, we’ve made him an LAA member and invited him to join us for a day at LAA HQ too. He’s got just the sort of design talent we need for the future!"

First prize in the 5-8 year category went to Bessie Revell and first prize in the 9-12 age group went to Sebastian Wright. All showed real talent and imagination in their designs, as did many of the runners up. Congratulations to all who entered and the LAA hopes that the diversion of an art competition during lockdown has helped to give some added interest to long days at home.

International Friendship - Theme Announced for 2021 FAI Art Contest

The LAA is also continuing to work with the Royal Aero Club to facilitate UK entries for the FAI International Aviation Art Contest, with the world's sporting body announcing a title for the 2021 contest which is very appropriate to the times in which we find ourselves. The title "A Friendlier World with Air Sports" encourages participants to create a picture to illustrate how friendships are made via aviation across the world.

The UK competition will close on 31st January 2021. More details to follow.
