Current POTW Winner | Past POTW Winners

As a general rule, spectacle wins the ribbon in our "Picture of the Week" contest. Catch a tremendous stunt in progress or snap a photo of a pristine aerial formation, and you're a contender. But action isn't the only element of a good photo color, composition, humor, and historical significance all factor into our "POTW" choices. Did we mention composition? Sometimes a well-planned shot of the simplest scene can steal the show. If you don't believe us, check out this week's winning photo from Steve Hughes of Washington state. Steve gives new meaning to the the term "vanishing point" (using only five aircraft) and takes home a coveted AVweb baseball cap!
