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.  ;)

A Blue Christmas

... is surely just an expression to Randy Pike of Cypress, Texas.  After all, Randy lives in the Dry Creek Airport Community, has enough free time to trim the plane up right for the holiday season, and is today's "Picture of the Week" winner from AVweb!

On the off-chance Randy really is feeling as blue as his holiday lights, we'll be sending an official AVweb baseball cap to brighten his spirits!

Though we probably won't run any more holiday light photos here in "POTW," we'd love to see some more of them!  (Hint.)

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.

Oops!  Missed a Spot!

Jane Carpenter of Ft. Collins, Colorado seems to have been caught up in Denver's Christmas travel excitement last week.  She snapped this photo which has to be seen at full-size to be appreciated while sitting on the taxiway, waiting "for departure to a much warmer climate!"

Frederick Gay of Brookline, Massachusetts didn't say much in his comments but we thought this photo spoke volumes, especially as families were coming together at airports all around the world this holiday season.

To Frederick and the unbelievable 2,673 other AVweb readers who submitted photos in 2006:  Thank you for making this feature so much fun to do every week.  We'll be back next week to kick off 2007 with a brand-new batch of reader-submitted photos assuming you send us some.  ;)

In the meantime, don't forget to check AVweb.com for more than a dozen bonus photos from this week's submissions!

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 send us an e-mail.
