Current POTW Winner | Past POTW Winners

2006 has arrived, and "POTW" submission numbers are beginning to rise back into the sky.  Of course, we'll need you to submit your own photos if we hope to stretch that metaphor into the upper atmosphere.  We can't offer you an X Prize but we will award a spiffy, brand-new AVweb baseball cap to each week's top winner.  Betcha even Burt Rutan would appreciate that ... . 

To kick off the New Year, let's welcome a past "POTW" winner Robert "Bob" Burns, who took the top spot two years ago and returns this week to add a second cap to his collection.

Due to privacy issues, AVweb does not publish e-mail addresses of readers who submit photos.
