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 photos featured? Submit them here!

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. ;)

Into the Sunshine

Adam Penner of Steinbach, Manitoba (Canada) takes home this week's top honor as our "Picture of the Week." It's a fitting award, considering the two most prevalent themes in this week's submissions unbelievably beautiful horizons and Canadian photographers!

(For more horizons and a couple of extra Canadians be sure to check out the "Picture of the Week" feature on our home page, at www.AVweb.com.)

Adam, we'll get an official AVweb baseball cap off to you as soon as we can send the end of the line at the Post Office!

AVweb continues to receive a large number of excellent images for our POTW contest. Here are some of the runners-up. Due to privacy issues, AVweb does not publish e-mail addresses of readers who submit photos.

Northern Skies Light Up

No, really Canadians and skylines. We weren't kidding!

Stefan H. P. Elieff of Ottawa, Ontario (Canada) carries the baton masterfully with this photo of "Sander Geophysics' airborne survey helicopter C-GSGH, pictured under northern lights and Ursa Major (the 'Big Dipper').

"I was part of the survey crew working in Canada's Northwest Territories this November and had brought my old manual film camera along hoping for such a photo opportunity," Stefan writes. "(The new digital ones don't last long at -30C). The glow inside the helicopter is from the computer screens of the geophysical instruments."
