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 the temperatures continue to rise at "POTW" headquarters, so does the quality of our submissions. That's good news for you, too (assuming you enjoy a good break from work to ogle airplanes as much as we do). If you've got some photos to share, please contribute to the fun! We look forward to seeing your images.

Gary Ward at Lumberton

This week's top photo comes from Donald Reid of Bumpass, Virginia, who shot this amazing photo for Ward in North Carolina last month. Gary tells the shot was taken using nothing more than a Canon with 200mm zoom and extender.

Nighttime Departure

Chris Zavatson of Woodland, California writes, "This is a photo of a Seneca departing Woodland-Watts Airport ... (KO41). I happened to have my camera available and thought I would give this a shot." We think it turned out pretty nice, Chris!

New Top Secret Air Show Act

Timothy O'Connor of Batavia, Ohio tells us "this new top secret air show act where a Stearman biplane walks a tightrope was observed last week at Red Stewart Airfield in Ohio." Mmm-hmm I'm sure we'll see it for ourselves at AirVenture, Tim!

More Pics to See
Cruise on over to AVweb's home page, and you'll find more than a dozen bonus pics that we couldn't fit into this week's "POTW" story.

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.
