Welcome to the next round of the EAA Sport Aviation magazine photo contest!
We'll be posting the top ten photos submitted for the March issue in a photo gallery on the main EAA website sometime next week ... but you'll have to wait and see the magazine for yourself to see who won!
In the meantime, start sending in your submissions for April!
As before, here's how it all works:
- First, you’ll take a great photo, one that evokes the spirit of aviation. Feel free to include a caption or any other notes about the setting, subject matter, etc. The "spirit of aviation" is a broad definition - show us pictures OF aircraft, pictures taken FROM aircraft, people thinking ABOUT aircraft ... well, as long as it's obvious ... anyway, you get the idea.
- Then, you’ll reply to this thread and embed the picture in your post. (We prefer it if you include just one picture per post.)
- As our deadline approaches each month, the photo submissions will be reviewed by the editorial team (and me!), and we will choose a winner to be published in the magazine (with full and appropriate credit, naturally.)
- We’ll contact the photographer directly to arrange for their submission of a print-quality version of the winning photo (see below.) We’ll also provide the basic legalese at that point to ensure that we have the rights to publish the photo.
There are a few things to point out:
- Note that, above, we said you’ll take the photo – submissions must be made by the original photographer.
- While we will be choosing the winners ourselves, we are, in fact, human beings, and certainly wouldn’t ignore a picture if it had an unusually high “thumbs-up” count or a lot of positive comments here in the forum.
- Photos must be posted here to be considered – email submissions will not be accepted.
- In addition, the pictures you post here will be automatically resized for web viewing, which means they won’t be of a high-enough resolution for print. So, in order for your picture to be considered for publication, you must be able to provide a high resolution print-ready version on request.
- This means that the original should ideally be 8 Megapixels (~3264 x 2448) or higher.
Enter as many pictures as you like – the more the merrier!
The deadline for submissions to the April, 2010 issue is
February 22, 2010.

Although the original image is 2637 x 1753 1.82MB it is a very sharp photo.
This was taken at Oshkosh 2009, Walking around looking at the endless rows of amazing displays history and shear beauty this angle caught me. Laid out on the ground scooting around for angles, waiting for clouds to pass the cone, I'm used to being a fool... thats why you never see my kid with me
Credit where it is due, The cone and prop belong to Sweet Revenge, a spectacular specimen.

Here's a very special photo of my 7-year-old grandson Will (right seat) and me doing a curtsy after his first airplane flight ever. It was in our 1946 Cessna 120 "Betty Louise." I'm using this photo on my latest CFI busines cards. My son Joe took the photo.
