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.


One of the happy coincidences of our publication schedule is that Thanksgiving in the U.S. always falls on Thursday and nothing makes us more thankful for AVweb readers than sharing your photos with the world on a Thursday morning. Thanks for sending us your aviation shots this year, and please send us more in the coming weeks!

Gulfstream 3 Air Ambulance

Joseph Chambers of Flower Branch, Georgia says there were plenty of onlookers checking out this Phoenix Air Gulfstream 3 at the Dobbins Air Force Reserves Base air show. Despite the crowds, he managed to get at least one photo showcasing the interior (which, Joseph tells us, accomodates six stretchers).

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.
