PAINT YOUR MASTERPIECE 

AMAZE THE WORLD 
 WITH YOUR DESIGN. 

 
 

We want you to use your vision and imagination on the outside of our planes to capture the spirit of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Just think of the sheer scale of your masterpiece. You'll be there as teams of painters and engineers apply your design to 12 of the world's most expensive passenger airliners.

Then, quite literally, millions will look up to your work. Our planes will be your canvas, seen landing and taking off at airports across the world, flying athletes, dignitaries and guests into The London 2012 Games.

 

A FANTASTIC BOOST WITH 
 WORLD CLASS MENTORING.

As the winner, you'll benefit from the artistic input of one of the most recognised British artists - Tracey Emin. Just think, you'll have a Turner Prize-nominated artist to bounce your ideas off.
