To mark its 30th birthday, low-cost carrier Ryanair has launched a new publicity stunt that involves emblazoning the faces of 30 flyers on the fuselage of the company’s Boeing 737 aircraft.

The tagline sums up the idea in two tidy sentences: “Your face on a plane. It’s a dream you never knew you had until now.”

Because aside from Hello Kitty, Tintin, hobbits and dwarves, few others can boast bragging rights to having had their face blown up to aircraft proportions and flown 35,000 feet in the air.

To enter, participants must write a short blurb explaining why they should be chosen to grace one of 30 Boeing 737s in 500 characters.

Winners will see a decal of their face, name and signature plastered on a plane for up to six months.

The Ryanair contest closes August 31. Winners will be announced September 1. Images will be applied before January 31, 2016.
