2020 Aviation Week Photo Contest WinnersMichael Lavitt
The Photo Contest in a Surreal Year
We knew this year would be a challenging one for the Aviation Week Photo Contest because so many events at which photographers shoot were canceled or postponed and travel was so restricted. In order to make the Photo Contest successful during the COVID-19 pandemic, we:
- Accepted photos taken since 2000 so photographers could dig into their archives and offer great images that might not have been widely shared;
- Created a special category, The COVID-19 Challenge, for outstanding photojournalism that tells the story of the pandemic and its effect on the world’s airlines and aerospace industry.
The world’s aviation photographers responded, submitting 656 photos for consideration. We hope you like the results.
