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 always, here's how it 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 in a 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 May, 2011 issue is
