Submit a Photo | Rules | Tips | Questions | Past Winners

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." Want to see your photo on AVweb.com? Click here to submit it to our weekly contest.

*** THIS WEEK'S WINNERS ***

Happy Thanksgiving, to those of you reading AVweb in the United States! Here at "POTW" world headquarters, we have plenty to be thankful for including the steady flow of reader contributions that arrive in our inbox each week.

Changing Seats

Speaking of photos that stick in your brain, this one from Larry Raulston of Neosho, Missouri certainly fits the bill. Pictured are Kyle Franklin and Todd Green practicing their wing-walking routine. "I managed to be in just the right spot," writes Larry.

Boeing E-3 Sentry (AWACS) Smoking the Tires

Ricky Barnard of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma delivers a photo that we'd have loved to get our hands on two years ago, when we were looking for AWACS silhouettes to use in story. That story has long since faded into history, but the pic will live on in the form of desktop wallpaper around here ... .

Fun with Mark

You'll find more reader-submitted photos in the slideshow on AVweb's home page. Don't miss 'em!

Click here to submit your own photos to "POTW."

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, consult the POTW Rules or or send us an e-mail.
