Hello all and welcome to the second annual North American Design Competition sponsored by Sierra Pacific. My name is Boeing Flight Simulator and I will be the host of this year's competition alongside Airplano21, DET and J.L. 747. We are happy to welcome you to this year's competition and hope you have as much fun designing as we did setting this up for you all. Now without further adieu we will get into the guidelines for this year's competition.
First off the changes from last year's competition.
Brands made after November 21st 2021 are eligible for entry, This will allow for a larger pool of entries (as after all there is a lot of room available for new or past brands to intermingle)
Auxiliary branding will now be a fundamental part of the submission contributing to the overall score of any submitted brands. This will now count for 10 points out of each submission.
Now onto categories, There will be four categories to this competition same as last year,
A. Full Service/Mainline Carriers (Ex. United, Air Canada)
B. Low Cost Carriers/Ultra Low Cost Carriers (Ex. Spirit, Frontier, Volaris)
C. Regional Airlines (Ex. Endevor, Air Wisconsin, Denver Air Connect)
D. Cargo and Charter Carriers (Ex. National, Polar, FedEx Express)
Each Participant is limited to one entry per category. (No Reserving Space)
Entries must be from the modern era 1995-2022
Each entry must either be from scratch or posted on the gallery after November 21st 2021
All submissions must have a short lore post. 10-25 sentences
Participants must include a separated livery and logo, At least one piece of Auxiliary branding is also required but there is no cap on Auxiliary branding. Failure to include aux branding will be an immediate loss of 10 points.
Credit sources ex. If you did not make your logo and it is found it is not your logo (without Credit) points will be docked from the final score.
