Sailplane and Sky

Send us your best designs and win awesome prizes!

SH Team is organising a contest to find the design that will be stitched/ painted on the back of the new Schempp-Hirth clothes.

You are passionate about soaring? You have a good sense of fashion? You know what you like to wear or you just want to have a chance to win one of our prizes?

Email your drawing(s) to designcontest(at) before 01.09.2021.

Entries will be judged by following criteria:

  • The design needs to be highly recognizable as Schempp-Hirth gliders
  • Aesthetic criteria. A dynamic drawing would be a plus.
  • It is better if we can stitch it: it means that it mustn’t have too small details nor thin lines (less than 1mm). A maximum of 3-4 colours would be best.
  • The design needs to fit in a 250x250 mm square and with a resolution of 300dpi.

By 01.09.2021, the 3 first places will be announced on social media. We are also planning nice surprises for the podium.


To participate:

  • Create your design
  • Read the Competition rules and disclaimer (below)
  • Send your design to designcontest(at)
  • Stay tuned and follow us on Facebook and Instagram!

We are looking forward to your designs and drawing!
