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 photo on AVweb.com? Click here to submit it to our weekly contest.


As we dive head first into the AOPA Expo in Hartford, Connecticut, we find ourselves staring down the barrel of 130 top-drawer reader-submitted photos. With the show hanging over our heads and so many great photos to sort (and somehow choose between) we'll waste no time cutting to the chase. As soon as things slow down, we'll load up our home page slideshow with the best photos from the last two weeks that we couldn't share here in "POTW" proper.

We'll see you back here next week. In the meantime, please remember to submit your photos and if you see us flitting around AOPA, stop us and say hi!

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 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 or send us an e-mail.
