SquawkBox Art Contest

Your humble narrator, while happy writing code for the new version of SquawkBox, is somewhat artistically challenged. SquawkBox 3 is in need of some art assets. Specifically it needs a logo, an icon, and a splash screen. So I'm holding a contest for this.

I will accept submissions between now and when the program is in alpha (which will happen at some undetermined date in the future). So get your submissions in soon! Here are the specs:

All images can be up to 24 bit colour.

The images should convey the following idea: SquawkBox lets you fly in a realistic environment with other pilots and in communication with realistic ATC services. SquawkBox is about two things: flying as real as it gets, and being part of an online aviation community of like-minded individuals.

The artists who submit the winning entries will receive all the fame and glory that goes along with receiving credit for contributing to the next generation of online pilot software.

Decisions of which art is chosen to be used rest solely with me. The judges decisions are final. No purchase necessary. Offer void where prohibited. Aim away from face.

If you have any questions about the contest or the art requirements, let me know. Send all entries to

Good luck!
