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.


Welcome back to AVweb's "Picture of the Week" feature!  We've been riding high on reader submissions for quite some time, but this week saw the tide of photos ebb a bit.  We realize that everyone is recuperating from the holidays, but we start to feel a little unloved if we get fewer than a hundred photo submissions in a week.  (Yes, we're incorrigible. And you can submit your photos here.)

Handful of Hanriot

Jerry L. Morris of Dahlonega, Georgia sped past our astonished eyes with this shot of "a copy of a 1910 Hanriot taken at [the] September 2, 2007 Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome Air Show."

Congrats, Jerry the AVweb cap we're sending your way might not be as stylish as a period aviator cap, but it'll keep your noggin warm.

Caravan Awaiting

Spoo-ooo-ooky.  Brad A. Meier of Kennesaw, Georgia sent in this image "straight from the camera," with no light manipulations.

Beaver on Lake Coeur d'Alene

Darian Williams of Hazard, Kentucky treated us to a couple of photos from Idaho's Lake Coeur d'Alene.  This one reminded us of the halcyon days of summer (and the fact that we never get to spend any time ogling seaplanes at Oshkosh).

Soon ... Soon ...

Rob Wyder of Palm Coast, Florida sees us off this week with his Marquart Charger, which seems "anxious to get out of the hangar."

Patience, lady patience ... .

Send us your photos here!

Want to see more reader-submitted shots?  There's always a few surprises in the slideshow on our home page.

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.
