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 ***

So many great photos, so little time — a lament that's especially true this week, since we didn't have time to properly pick and format winners before press time. Not to worry — we'll sneak a link into this week's AVwebAudio and run the top five in Monday's edition of AVwebFlash. Enjoy!

Hooligan Flight Team Stacks Up, Ready for the Break

The hooligan bringing us these Hooligans is Russell A. McDonald of Nappanee, Indiana. If you're not impressed yet, just wait until you see the photos Mr. McDonald had to beat out for this week's top spot ... !

The Old and the Newer

Frank Ladd of Kokomo, Indiana knows a good contrast when sees one. (Or maybe he just knows a good parking space when he sees it.)

It's True — They DO Look Like Their Owners

Eric Cobb of Santa Ynez, California and pilot Ron Ziegler (seen here with his new Cub) know how to get smile out of us.

(Check out this week's slideshow for another pic of Ron and his Cub.)

Hungry for more AVweb reader photos? Head over to our home page and scroll down about a third of the page to check our weekly slideshow.

And don't forget: 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.
