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.


With the craziness of back-to-back shows in Atlanta (NBAA) and Long Beach (the AOPA Summit) behind us, it's time to delve into our bag of user submissions and play catch-up. We've got lots of great photos to share with you over the next couple of weeks, so buckle up as we plow full steam ahead into cache of reader-submitted pictures.

Contrast in Technology

Speaking of eye-catching photos contrast is the perfect word for this shot from Schaumburg, Illinois's John Rippinger. John snapped it at the 2010 Wings Over Whiteman Air Show at Missouri's Whiteman Air Force Base.

Outdoor Movie Night at the Fargo Jet Center Drive-In/Fly-In

Darren Hall of Fargo, North Dakota tells us that Fargo Jet Center has finally combined two of our favorite pastimes the fly-in and the drive-in. Their first annual Drive-In/Fly-In Movie Night was held on October 1 "as a community outreach to introduce people to general aviation."

(Best outreach idea ever? Maybe so!)

We'll have more photos for you in the slideshow on AVweb's home page. Don't miss it!

Have some pictures to share? Submit 'em here! We can't to wait to take a look.

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. ;)

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.
