It's not even officially Winter yet, and here we are looking ahead to Spring ...
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:
- 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.) Note: to embed a picture, click the camera button on the toolbar to find and upload the file .... Please use this method to make the picture immediately visible as opposed to simply attaching the file.
- 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.)
- 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.)
The deadline for submissions to the March, 2011 issue is
January 15th, 2011.

Sunrise over the Ozark foothills.
There's nothing extraordinary about it, except that I took the picture, from an aircraft that I built with my own hands.
I guess that makes it special to me.

The attached photo is one you might want to consider as a candidate for the Member Photo of the Month in the Sport Aviation Magazine.
Not much is more satisfying to Paul Fiebich, EAA 577724, than flying his Experimental AirBike one thousand feet above the landscape south of Wichita, Kansas. This altitude is low enough to wave at people on the ground yet high enough to clear most towers. The Arkansas River collects the sky's color while cameraman Terry Alley takes photographs through the window of the Clipped Wing Cub his dad, Lawrence, pilots. Paul is a member of EAA Chapter 88 of Wichita, Kansas. Learn more of Paul's AirBike adventures on his website: paul.fiebich.org.

Stearman over the Beach of Pensacola. I hope this works. It would not take my attachment earlier.

I took this picture just before sunrise as I was preparing my Kitfox for an early morning flight from Rossettie Airport in southeastern Michigan.

Experimental KIS Cruiser (N819PR) on the St, Simmons Island GA (KSSI) ramp at sunset. We had finished tying her down after arriving from Zephyrhills, FL on leg #10 of a 39 day trip. We still had 3 more legs left before we arrived back home to North Houston Business (9X1).
