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 months theme is 'Civilian Display Team'. Lets see your best photos of a civilian display team, for example - The Blades, Great War Display Team, Turbulent Team, Team Raven, Fireflies Aerobatics Display Team, Trig Aerobatic Team, Wingwalking team, or any other civilian display team from around the world...

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, and 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.
