Submit a Photo
Each week, we go through dozens (and sometimes
hundreds) of reader-submitted photos and pick the very best to share
with you on Thursday mornings. The top photos are featured on
AVweb's home page, and one photo
that stands above the others is awarded an AVweb baseball cap as our
"Picture of the Week."
*** THIS WEEK'S WINNERS ***
Our intrepid "POTW" editor is on the road today, seeing
real airplanes and sunsets instead of sifting through pictures on
the computer. Not to worry he's left behind plenty of
eye-popping reader-submitted photos to tide us over, including a handful
of holdovers from last week's contest.

Apologies to Bud Struck of Garrison,
NY for tilting his photo at such an odd angle but we had to size it a
bit to fit our home page slideshow. (You can see the original,
I'm doing an A&P course at the Teterboro School of
Aeronautics, and while studying the AC-43.13, my two-year-old son
Tomas comes up and starts taking apart (and putting back
together) his toy airplane. So I put the book on his lap and
took the shot. ... It's only a little bit set up!
A bit but we'll still send you (and Tomas) a matched set of AVweb
caps to keep the sun off your heads.

This shot from Bruce Windom of Belle
Mead, New Jersey may seem restful, but it's not as easy-going as it
might seem. This American Airlines 767 is on the ramp at Rio de
Janeiro, readying itself for the all-night trip back to New York's JFK

Jerry E. Doyle of Las Vegas, NV sees
us off this week and reminds us that air show season is just around
the corner with a photo taken at last year's EAA AirVenture.
Remember: You'll find more than a dozen brand-new photos
online in the "POTW" slideshow on AVweb's home page!
To enter next week's contest,
A quick note for submitters: If you've got several
photos that you feel are "POTW" material, your best bet is to submit
them one-a-week! That gives your photos a greater chance of seeing
print on AVweb, and it makes the selection process a little easier on
us, too. ;)
A Reminder About Copyrights: Please take a moment to consider the
source of your image before submitting to our "Picture of the Week" contest.
If you did not take the photo yourself, ask yourself if you are indeed
authorized to release publication rights to AVweb. If you're uncertain,
send us an e-mail.
