Aviation Photograph Competition

Photograph Competition Rules

Would you like to see your photograph on the Homepage for a month?

Send your photograph or email to and it will be judged along with other entries to decide the winner who will have their photograph displayed on the Homepage for one month. There will be a new theme each month and your photograph must be relevant to this. Remember only one picture per person and it must be a photograph that is owned by you.(see Rules below).

Next month's theme is 'Apache Helicopter'. With the Army Air Corps transitioning from their original Apache AH1 to the new Apache AH-64E helicopter then let's see your best photos of the Apache helicopter....

Please send in your entries by April 26th and the winning photograph will be on the Homepage on May 1st 2024 for a month. The Photograph Competition starts at the beginning of each month.

You can enter just one photograph per month.
Please send your photograph in .jpg format.
The photograph must be all your own work, you must have copyright.
Please make the size of your photograph no larger than 1024 pixels across.
Photos will be judged on quality, relevance to the theme, rarity, and how good it looks on the Homepage.
The Photo-competition will start and have a new theme at the beginning of each month.
Sorry, NO prizes but you will have your picture on the Homepage for one month.
Please send some info about the picture such as what it is, where it was taken, camera/lens used and your name.

Your photo must be relevant to the theme.
The larger the filesize the better the image quality. Filesizes up to 1MB+ are accepted.
Check that the exposure is correct with no blown highlights or underexposed aircraft.
If applicable then make sure runways and buildings are fairly straight.
Flying aircraft are generally preferred over static aircraft as they are harder to capture.
If it looks good on the Homepage then it will have more chance of winning.
