MIAMI — Are you an avgeek at heart with a passion for livery design? Hainan Airlines, Boeing and DreamWorks Animation have teamed up to get your passion materialized into action… in pure Kung Fu Panda action!
All you have to do is to participate in a contest, which runs through September 30, by clicking on Hainan Airlines’ website, where you’ll be prompted to arrange a selection of stamps, symbols and paint patterns on line, to fill out a blank 3D plane template. Click a button to submit your design, and you could be a winner of a trip to China.
The top-rated design will be featured on a Hainan Airlines 787 Dreamliner, and the designer will win two round-trip, business-class tickets to China from any North American city served by Hainan, plus one week’s luxury hotel accommodations in China. The runner-up will get two round-trip tickets to China.
Ready to get in the Kung Fu Panda mood? feel free to browse a gallery of the entries submitted so far, or maybe catch up with the “Kung Fu Panda” movies as well as Hainan Airlines’ hilariously cartoony five-minute safety video.
While the design elements have to include the Kung Fu Panda characters and the usual corporate branding, your designed livery will be graded upon how well it reflects the Chinese culture.
The contest is open only to those 18 years or older who currently live in the U.S. or Canada, excluding New York, Florida and Quebec.
