LAUNCH YOUR DESIGN WITH CHEOPS – Competition submission form


Calling all graphic designers and artists: ESA is inviting you to submit a design to feature on the rocket carrying the CHEOPS satellite.

The design will be placed on the Soyuz rocket's fairing, the tough outer shell that protects the satellite during launch and as it passes through the atmosphere into space. At an altitude of about 100 km the fairing will be jettisoned and fall back to Earth, while CHEOPS will continue into orbit. The competition announcement can be found here.

Designs can be submitted in pdf format; the winner and runners-up will be contacted at a later date for alternative file formats.

If you would like to share the motivation or inspiration for your design, you may provide a short text (maximum 250 words) in the About my design field below, but this is not mandatory.

Participants under the age of 18 must have permission from a parent or guardian.

Only one submission per person may be made. To withdraw a submission, enter the email address that you used for your submission, click on the search icon above the form and follow the instructions that are sent to you by email.

Full competition rules can be found here. Please read the rules carefully before making your submission.
