Here comes another one!

If you're an EAA member and want to see one of your photos in EAA Sport Aviation magazine, just post it here. It's as easy as that. (As long as we select yours as the winner, of course, but that's just the fine print ...)

 

 As before, here's how it all works:   

  

  1. 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.

  2. 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.) Note: to embed a picture, click the camera button on the toolbar to find and upload the file ....

  3. As our deadline approaches, the photo submissions will be reviewed by the editorial team (and me), meeting ina secure and undisclosed location, and we will choose a winner to be published in the magazine (with full and appropriate credit, naturally.)

  4. 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: 

  • The photo contest is open to all members of EAA.
     

  • 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! (Though, again, we prefer you post each picture separately.) 


NOTE:
The deadline for submissions to the February, 2011 issue is 
December 15th, 2010.

Three Sisters V2.0.jpg 

This was my dream - to fly home to Oregon over the Three Sisters that I have hiked and admired from the ground for so many years growing up.  I wanted to bring home more than a college education - I wanted to bring home an airplane.   I spent two thousand hours finishing my VariEze in between classes, homework, and ROTC.  I missed out on some incredible frat parties, and video gaming for sure!  Grand Forks is an incredible place, home of the University of North Dakota Fighting Sioux, the Army ROTC Helicopter Flight Training Program, and -50ºF winters. 

I can't explain the emotion that I felt when I was giving my family and long time friends rides all over the Pacific Northwest - flying over 55 hours in 11 days including the 1200NM Legs from Grand Forks to the Pacific Ocean.  I was pretty intimidated by the sheer distance, let alone the fact that I would be crossing the Northern Rockies twice with only the training I had from the flattest area of the Country!  This trip began 46 hours since the aircraft's birth, April 26, 2010.  This photo was taken  by me flying with the right hand and taking photos with the left on July 12, 2010 using a fish eye lens on a basic point and shoot digital camera.

I have approximately 125 hours on the airplane now, and I recently gave my first young eagle a ride down in sweet home Alabama!  I appreciate the help and support from the people through EAA, and am overwhelmed giving back the excitement of flight to others!  More than that, I hope this photo might help people like me set mountians for their goals and eventually soar over them while grinning ear to ear

Winner, Benjamin 2LT AV

I've always been in love with DC3s, but particularly so on this day when this gorgeous FAA "3" provided shelter from the rain and a perfect vantage point from which view the myriad of aircraft that flew into Oshkosh.
