St. Augustine Air Shows announce 2011 Commemorative Poster Contest

St. Augustine Air Shows and Southeast Aero are calling all artists to submit their visions in a 2011 St. Augustine Air Show commemorative poster contest. The chosen artist will receive a cash prize of $750 sponsored by Southeast Aero Services, Inc.

A two-day air show held Memorial Day Weekend, May 28 and 29, 2011, will continue a tradition of air shows at the Northeast Florida Regional Airport in St. Augustine dating back to 1967. The event will honor our military with a special "Salute to Veterans", past and present and promises to provide entertainment for the whole family.

There will be performances by world-reknown aerobatic pilots as well as many outstanding military exhibits and static displays. St. Augustine Air Shows is planning events for the whole family that recognizes and supports the contributions made by our veterans. Proceeds from the event will benefit United Way of St. Johns County, Wounded Warrior Project, Special Operations Warrior Foundation and Naval Special Warfare Foundation (SEALS).

Entries for the poster contest must be received by February 1, 2011, submitted in a JPEG or PDF file to cfordem@staugustineairshow.net. The artist will sign 1000 copies of the poster which will be available for sale by St. Augustine Air Shows. The artist will be a VIP of the show attending all events including the hospitality event at the NE Florida Regional Airport the Friday evening before the show.
