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.


AVweb readers served up an incredible batch of original photos this week, stuffing our "POTW" contest box with stunning images snapped at hangars, airports, fly-ins, and backyards across the globe. (Want to see your photos here? Try submitting them via this form. Even if your photos aren't featured, we'll be more than happy to drool over your plane and jealously fantasize about the places you visited this year while we were sitting in a dark little room looking at airplane pictures.)

Blue Angels on the Flight Line at El Centro NAS

John Fleck of Indianapolis, Indiana has submitted some great pics over the last few months. Today, he joins the proud ranks of "POTW" winners, and he's certainly earned it.

All Eyes on the Lady

Gary Dikkers of Madison, Wisconsin gets us in the mood for AirVenture with this shot direct from Wittman Field at Oshkosh. (Yes, we do love a little symmetry!)

Air Force One at LAX Close-Up

John Schuster of Christiansted in the Virgin Islands grabbed a few shots of Air Force One landing at Los Angeles but it's this perspective that left us saying, "Now there's something you don't see every day."

Under the Watchful Eye of Airdale Len Roberto

Jerry M. O'Neill (of Cheshire, Connecticut) takes us back to the flight line, where this week's edition started. This time it's Mather Field at Rancho Cordova, California, but you'll forgive us if we close our eyes and pretend we're already at Linder Airport in Lakeland, Florida. (We've got a touch of Sun 'n Fun fever, folks.)

More Reader-Submitted Pictures
... can be found in the "POTW" slideshow on our home page. Watch for fresh photos later today!

Click here to submit your own photos to "POTW."

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.
