== 15 years of FlightGear, screenshot contest ==
 +
To celebrate FlightGear's 15th birthday (July 17), we decided to organise a screenshot contest. After two weeks of public voting, the winners were announced on August 18 with the release of FlightGear 2.8.0. The winning screenshots are used to promote FlightGear to the wider public.
 +
 +
Nearly 500 people participated in the voting. Voters were presented with two random screenshots at a time, from which they had to pick the one that they liked most. This was repeated over and over again. In the end, 41845 screenshot pairs were compared! The screenshots were then ranked according to their pass ratio. The more a screenshot was prefered over it's partner, the higher it ended up in our ranking.

The overall winner was '''Thorsten Renk''''s screenshot of a [[Hawker Sea Hawk FGA.6|Seahawk]], "Passing through a rain front during a carrier approach.", which you can find below. The complete ranking and all participating screenshots can be found at [http://flightgear.org/contest flightgear.org/contest]
