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.


The cold snap affecting much of North America is keeping many AVweb readers indoors, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Judging by the uptick in submissions to our "POTW" contest this week, you're finding worthwhile ways to keep yourself occupied indoors. So keep sorting those photos and keep sending them our way!

B-17 in Heavy Icing

Terry Klein of Averill Park, New York warns, "You should never give an engineer a welder and a bunch of steel." (Oh, you don't need to tell us that, Terry!) "Here's what our B-17 windmill looked like after the recent ice storm," he continues. "No power for four days; lots of time to take pictures."

(Note that we skipped the customary NTSB/deicing recommendations

Spruce Creek RVs Over Arthur Dunn Air Park

Susan J. Sherrill of Titusville, Florida sees us off with a great formation shot from EAA Chapter 866's pancake breakfast. Nice scenery to start the day!

Oops! Last week we had a problem with the photo slideshow on AVweb's home page, but this week everything should be running smoothly. Be sure to check out lots of great photos we just couldn't squeeze into the regular installment of "POTW"!

And click here to submit your own photos to "POTW." You know you want to.

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.
