We have received 98 approved aviation related pictures and photos and found each and every one of them beautiful therefore it was very hard to choose only 3 winners. What made things even harder was the fact that we were reduced to 2 judges instead of 4 but nevertheless the job was done. 

Congratulations to all of you!!!

We would like everyone who submitted a photo to know what a hard decision it was to choose a winner. All entries were amazing and we understand the hard work that goes into a contest like this one. The dedication and commitment really showed in each image we received and we appreciate the time and effort that went into our competition.

We were able to choose only three winners but all that entered are winners. The love and soul that each of you have for aviation is mind-blowing and although everyone deserves to win, unfortunately competitions don’t work that way. We choose the images we thought really stood out and spoke to us. We choose the photos we thought were shot with more heart than most and that’s how we decided on the winners.

We appreciate everyone for entering and loving what you do. The passion is great and the photos that were choses display that passion. We would like to congratulate the winners and say to all the rest not to give up that more competitions will pass your way.

The winners and their photos , as well as their stories are on the next page for you to read and admire. We know this competition was harder than they have been in the past, but the hard work that was given barely shows the difficulty this competition had this year. So once again congratulations to the three winners, keep up the great work and don’t ever lose the passion. And to those who entered we look forward to seeing your images again next time around and keep the dedication that we saw in all the photos that were sent it. We enjoyed seeing each and every one of them and it is too bad not everyone could win.

All pictures submitted and approved for the contest can be viewed here.

Till next time we wish you all happy flying.

Best Regards,
ComPilots Team
