Rules: Anyone can participate. Subject of the art must be the Greenville Downtown Airport, any general aviation aircraft or depictions of flying over the greater Greenville area. Only 1 entry per person. By submitting art you are confirming that you created the piece by yourself, own the rights to it and will give the Greenville Airport Commission the right to reproduce it at no charge.

The week-long celebration promotes aviation through events that highlight airports’ educational and economic impacts throughout the state.
