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.


This week's selection of "POTW" entries is top shelf, boys and girls. As usual, we've picked five to share here, but you don't want to miss the bonus pics we've got in the slideshow on AVweb's home page. Once you've enjoyed these pics, but sure to point your clicks over there and check out our runners-up.

A Cold Morning in Greeley, Colorado

Mike Gugeler of Erie, CO is here to remind us that the mail carrier's oath may apply just as well to FBO and airport staff. Despite the ice, someone's gotta show up!

"Remove Before Flight"

This Pilatus PC-12-NG (on display at AirVenture last year) may not be ready for the taxiway, but it was certainly primed for the camera of Montoursville, Pennsylvania's Eric Cipcic.

First Solo ... In a P-51!

Ron Horton of Fort Mill, South Carolina is starting his grandson Lucas young. And yes, that's actually a P-51 Ron built himself in his garage! Next time you see our buddies from Kitplanes, ask 'em about that one, O.K.?

You'll find more reader-submitted photos in the slideshow on AVweb's home page. Don't miss 'em!

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.
