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 we continue to catch up with recent submissions, we come to the period referred to as "The Virginian Week." No, that wasn't the week we watched James Drury on Starz all week though we did that, too: It's the week every pilot in Virginia seems to have uploaded a photo to our submission box. Maybe that's a slight exaggeration, but well, see for yourself as we queue up this week's top photos.

Guess Who

Judging by the photos he submitted, Bret Magee of Newport News, Virginia had a blast at the Hickory Aviation Museum. (We've got another of Bret's photos up in the slideshow on AVweb's home page right now.)

Night of the Arrival

"Last week, my favorite jet team; this week, my favorite prop team," writes Paul T. Gernhardt of Ashburn, Virginia. Even with such a charmed life, Paul finds time to snap a few photos and share them with us, including this incredible shot of one of the AeroShell Aerobatic Team's T-6s the night they arrived at Vicksburg Tallulah Regional Airport (KTVR).

"No Wonder My Car Insurance Is So Expensive ..."

Dennis Olcott of Vero Beach, Florida didn't say which one's the gecko and which one's the CEO but we still got a kick out of his sunny, fun-filled shot. In fact, we think we'll hang onto it, since summer is a long way off.

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.
