Current POTW Winner | Past POTW Winners

Thanks to all our contributors for a great batch of "POTW" entries! This is the most submissions we've had since August, and almost every one was a "final ten" contender. With all the great images, it took a little longer to select this week's winners but when the dust had settled (and the pizza and soda had been finished off), Jim Haseltine walked away with top honors. An official AVweb baseball cap is on its way, Jim! (Just, uh, ignore that marinara sauce.)

Due to privacy issues, AVweb does not publish e-mail addresses of readers who submit photos.
