Russian Aeroflot Is Celebrating Its 90th Anniversary with an Art Contest

To celebrate its 90th anniversary, the biggest Russian airline and one of the oldest in the world, Aeroflot, is hosting an art contest for its customers in Russia.

Starting January 21st, the company is inviting creative minds to submit their own variants of commemorative design for its newest plane—Sukhoi Superjet 100—and win some loyalty program items such as the Golden, Silver and Aeroflot Bonus cards. Plus, the winning sketch, which is to be selected via online voting, will be used to paint an actual plane.

Contestants, Russian nationals 18+, should register at, download the mock-up and paint it on their own desk- or laptops or, alternatively, do it online and then submit the results until February 28, 2013. The online voting starts on the 1st of March.

Over less than 5 days there have been more than a thousand (!) entries uploaded to the contest’s online gallery.
