Digital Competition 2024 Rules

Subject: Anything that typifies Shuttleworth

This includes any aircraft, other vehicle, landscape, building, or person present at Old Warden at the time of the photograph. This includes aircraft and vehicles, whether or not based at Old Warden and they don’t have to be owned by the Collection so visitors are eligible, as are all the multifarious vehicles, engines, machines, cycles (motor or otherwise), seen on site from time to time. And don’t forget the people associated with the Collection such as the pilots, engineers, volunteers etc. Your picture must simply evoke that special Shuttleworth atmosphere.

The closing date for entries is 18th May 2024.
