Her Art Here: Vote On the Next United Airlines Livery
It's been a little more than month since United Airlines announced its "Her Art Here" contest in which women across the US submit designs for the next Boeing 757 livery.
Now, United has narrowed down the competition to six finalists, and you can vote on which design you want to see take flight.
Finalists are divided into two categories: New York/New Jersey and California. Participants can vote for their favorite entries from each region once per day until April 19, and the winner will be chosen based on a combination of the judges’ score from round two and the final voting score.
The "Her Art Here" contest was launched as a means of promoting underrepresented female artists for Women's History Month in March. “As a company, we believe in the importance of equality of women in what has historically been a male-dominated field,” said Jill Kaplan, United’s president for New York and New Jersey. “When we heard the statistics about how underrepresented women are when it comes to displaying their art, we thought what better way to contribute to changing this narrative than by offering the biggest canvas we have access to — an aircraft.”
The final six artists will win 100,000 United MileagePlus award miles in addition to a selection of their existing work being featured in a gallery event and in United Club locations and United Polaris lounges.
As for the two winners, they will receive $10,000 in cash work alongside artist Shantell Martin to finalize the design for their 757. The final designs will be on display in Fall 2019.
