Thanks to your great response in past years, we’re launching the RAF 2019 Photo Contest!

Send us your best photos of you and the family with your airplane out enjoying a recreational airstrip. Winning images will appear on the popular RAF greeting cards that go out to thousands of donors and supporters as thank you notes. Winners receive a pack of high quality RAF greeting cards with their image on the front, just in time for the holidays.

A winner from each of five U.S. regions and one from our Youth category will be selected. One International entry will also be selected as a winner. The region is determined by where the photo is taken not the photographer’s home state.

Entry period
October 1, 2019 until 5 pm EST, November 1, 2019

Open to any RAF member, amateurs and professionals alike, including those 18 and under.

It’s easy to enter
Email high resolution (1MB or above) digital photos in .jpg format to:

Limit of five images per person, so please send only your best. By submitting your photo(s), you give the RAF permission to use your photo in RAF publicity.

Submissions must include:

  • Photographer’s name (Name remains anonymous during judging.)
  • If under 18, state the age of the photographer for our Youth category 
  • Phone number
  • Location of photo (airstrip and state)
  • Identify any faces in the image, and obtain permission from them for this use
  • If sending in photos of children, you must first obtain parent/guardian permission to use the images.

Our judges are our volunteers who write and send all the RAF thank you cards. They favor photos with airplanes, great scenery and people enjoying the experience.
Winners will be announced November 15. Each winner will receive a package of high quality greeting cards with their photo on the front; and their photo credit on the back.
