The photo contest is being revamped ...!
As our Publications team makes some minor organizational changes to Sport Aviation magazine, the Member Photo of the Month page is being retired - its final appearance will be in the August issue.
The contest itself, however, soldiers on, with the winning photo being used as our featured wallpaper download: http://www.eaa.org/wallpaper/
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 high-res 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 the desktop wallpaper. So, in order for your picture to be considered for publication, you must be able to provide a high resolution version on request.
- This means that the original should ideally be 3 Megapixels (~2048 x 1536) 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 September, 2011 contest is
July 15th, 2011.

I submitted a couple photos in the group that ended in June, but when looking back at the series of pictures, I didn't see them. I'm not concerned about winning or losing (although winning is always better!) but wondered why they don't show up. I was able to see them up to a couple days after submitting them but then didn't look again until today.

Oops! The sure way to find something is to say you can't find it! Yep, I see the pictures I was talking about are actually there. Sorry...

I'm not sure what caused the coloration in the clouds like that, but I love! I got this last year at the convention!

You may remember this from last year's convention as well?

O-2A taxiing out to takeoff for a mission over the Ho Chi Minh Trail in August 1970. This was at a Special Forces camp along the Vietnamese/Cambodian border and the yellow hue is due to smoke and haze from Montagnard farmers burning their crops after the harvest. The airplane is carrying two rocket pods loaded with smoke rockets.
