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.

Clearing Turn

That's some crosswind, isn't it?

Not really, but this shot from Eric Cobb of Santa Ynez, California still got a rise out of us. "Airports are among my favorite places," writes Eric. "KIZA Airport is the best."

"Now THAT's How Cargo Is Moved"

We love a good juxtaposition and Wes Beloncik of Oklahoma City apparently remembered that when he snapped this photo of a C-17 coming in over tractor trailers on final at OKC's Tinker Air Force Base.

(Or maybe his life doesn't revolve around us and Wes just snapped it because it made a good photo. But until we hear differently, we're treating this as the first Christmas present of a holiday season that's started very early this year.)

Let the Daydreams Begin

The internet can have its precious double rainbows. Tim H. Corban of Halsey, Oregon has 'em beat with this incredible shot of a rainbow painting the sunrise and, according to Tim, he was facing west when he snapped the shot. That means there was a whoel lot of refracting going on at Lebanon State Airport last week. (The photos was taken outside LebanAir Aviation there.)


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.
