    EAA Monthly Photo Contest - April 2012

    EAA Monthly Photo Contest - April 2012

    The photo contest continues!

    Submit your photos for the change to see it used as our featured wallpaper download:http://www.eaa.org/wallpaper/


    Here's how it works:
    1. First, you値l 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値l 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 image 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.
    3. 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 used as our featured wallpaper (with full and appropriate credit, naturally.)
    4. We値l contact the photographer directly to arrange for their submission of a high-res version of the winning photo as needed (see below.) We値l 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値l take the photo submissions must be made by the original photographer.
    • 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 may not 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.)


    NOTE:
    The deadline for submissions to the April 2012 contest is
    February 15th, 2012.

    Post-Restoration Flight N7155H

    My 1946 Piper Cub after first post-restoration flights. It was last flown in by my dad in 1969. I flew it on January 14, 2012. It now has two flights and about 1.5 hours since restoration. It shares a hangar with my brother's 1946 Cub N98459. Both have been in the family since the late 60s.

    We don't post the calendar pages more than a few days before the first of the month. The reason for the odd lead time in the contest (why this is the April thread, for example) is that it's been running nonstop since the winning pictures were published in the magazine. When we switched, we already had submissions a couple of months ahead, and I didn't want to not have a place for photos for a couple of months and lose momentum, so the schedule just keeps on keepin' on.
