2011 FAI Young Artists Contest

The International Jury of FAI met to determine the winners of the 2011 FAI Young Artists Contest, whose theme was “50 Years of Human Space Flight”. The theme of this year was tightly linked to the 50th anniversary of Gagarin’s historic flight.

Was a tough decission for the jury as all the members submitted high quality paintings.

And here are the results:

Group I – Junior Category / 2001-2004 (Ages 6-9)
1. Yulia TOROPOVA – Russia
2. Jiale LI – China
3. Jie SU – China

Group II – Intermediate Category / 1997-2000 (Ages 10-13)
1. Angela NOSENKO – Russia
2. Asiya STEPANOVA – Russia
3. Maiko MATSUTO – Japan

Group III – Senior Category / 1993-1996 (Ages 14-17)
1. Shosuke TAKEUCHI – Japan
2. Emmanuel ORTIZ – USA
3. Anna SOLDATOVA – Russia

The theme of the 2011 Contest will be “Silent flight”. The rules and the interpretation of the theme will be published later this month on the CIEA web pages.
