RAF Photo Contest Runs October 1 - November 1

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Your airplane could appear on the popular RAF greeting cards! We use these cards as “Thank-you” notes to our thousands of donors and supporters. Show us your airplane out enjoying a recreational airstrip. Winners will receive a pack of high quality RAF greeting cards with their image on the front, just in time for the holidays. This time we will award one winner in each region, and new this year: one winner in an 18-and-under youth category.

The contest starts on October 1, 2018 and ends November 1, 2018.


Contest is open to any RAF member: amateurs and professionals alike.

Entry Period

October 1, 2018 until 5 p.m. EST November 1, 2018

It’s Easy to Enter

Photos with airplanes, great scenery and people enjoying the experience are the most desirable. Email high resolution digital photos in .jpg, or .png format to:

ewhite@theraf.org by 5pm EST November 1, 2018.

Submissions must include:

Your name (photographer’s name if different from yours; and, if entering a youth in the 18-and-under youth category, the age of the photographer)

Email address

Phone number

Location of photo (airstrip and state)

Please identify any faces in the image, and obtain permission from them for this use.

If sending in photos of children, you are first required to obtain parent/guardian permission.

Limit of 5 images per person.

By submitting your photos(s), you give the RAF permission to use your photo(s) in RAF publicity.

Regions (winners for each region will be based on where the photo is taken, not the photographers home state)


Our judges are our volunteers who write and send all the RAF thank you cards. They will only have access to the photos; the photographer will remain anonymous during the judging.


Judges will select a winner in each region. Each will receive a package of high quality greeting cards with their photo on the front; and their photo credit on the back.


Winners will be announced November 15!
