Thomas J. Kalina of Racine, Wisconsin, won the Best of Show award and the top prize of $1,000 in the 2005 EAA Sport Aviation Art Contest. His entry, "South American Glory," depicts a Douglas DC-7B taking off in the early evening light.

Basler's entry depicted a solitary glider soaring above a canyon.

Mytar's entry was a watercolor showing a man and child fishing while perched on the float of a Piper J-3 Cub.
