2023 Aviation Week Photo Contest

The science and technology behind aviation have shrunk the world. Trips that once took months or even years are now measured in hours. The Aviation Week Photo Contest brings this point home in 2023 with photos from all seven continents, a first in the competition’s more than 30 years. Entries this year came from 14 countries and 28 U.S. states. We are also debuting a new category, Photo Illustration, that allows photographers to use the full range of effects in this digital age. And as always, we offer our four traditional categories: Commercial Aviation, Defense, General Aviation and Space.
