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. ;)

Snow Apache

Peter Schultz takes home top honors this week for a snowy photo that comes not from his home state of Idaho but from an area near Bermel, Afghanistan. The chopper's crew are members of the Idaho Army National Guard serving in the area.

One of the unabashed perks of working on "Picture of the Week" is getting to see this kind of photo those that remind us how much natural beauty and wonder are to be found in all sorts of places. Factor in the comments and insights of the AVweb readers who submit photos to our weekly contest, and it's like having a guided tour of the world show up in our inbox every week.

Thanks, Peter and everyone else who submits. Keep sending us photos and comments from your part of the globe, and we'll keep running 'em here!

Tennessee Sunset

Natural landscapes dominated our inbox for the second week in a row.

Will Jannaman of Hendersonville, Tennessee came within a hair's breadth of taking the top spot this week. Do yourself a favor and click through to the large version of this image. While you're there, you can do the same thing we did make it your desktop wallpaper.

(See more amazing landscapes plus a dozen other goodies in the extended "Picture of the Week" slideshow at AVweb.com.)

I Thought That You Stowed the Towbar

Lee Hogan of Addison, Illinois brightened up our day with this photo from DuPage County Airport in West Chicago. "The Skyhawk was on final when an instructor called out his problem on the tower frequency," writes Lee. (If you can't see the problem in the small image be sure to view the large version.) "The student flew the pattern for about 45 minutes until all of the rescue vehicles were in place. He landed with no damage, other than to his ego."

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