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 ***

Time Machine

Jake Bell of Danville, Kentucky snuck up to "look in the back door of the DC-3 Bones [when she] stopped by for fuel on the way to the Last Time DC-3 reunion at Oshkosh this past summer." Little did Jake realize that his glimpse into the past would make him a future "POTW" winner.

Waiting for Launch

John Hoke of Gladstone, Missouri couldn't pass up this display at the Air Zoo Museum in Kalamazoo, Michigan. (This is one jet that was never launched off a railgun.)

Foggy Fall Sunrise

We've always heard that the early bird gets the worm and if there's any truth that, then we'd like to go fishing with David Immel of Sandpoint, Idaho sometime.

Mediheli Winter Take-Off

For this week's big finale, we turn to Mikko Toivonen of Espoo in the Utrikesministeriet of Finland. If you're looking for a wintry wallpaper to decorate your desktop, give this one a shot. (We're putting it to work in that capacity right now!)


You'll find more reader-submitted photos in the slideshow on AVweb's home page. There are some good ones this week, so be sure to head over there and check them out.

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.
