Sporty’s Partners with Recreational Aviation Foundation for Photo Contest

Photo by Ted Waltman

The first ever back-country flying photo contest is now open for entries. Recreational Aviation Foundation members are urged to submit a photo to Sporty’s showing some aspect of back-country flying. The winning entry will be published on a future cover of Sporty’s Pilot Shop catalog with the winning photographer given a $500 Sporty’s gift card.

Photos should be submitted to [email protected] in a JPEG/TIF/PNG format along with the full name, address, email and phone of the submitter. Submissions should also include the airplane make and model, the time of year and location along with a few sentences describing the action in the photo.

“Since flying is a family affair, we urge photographers to include photos featuring friends and family, especially children,” says Sporty’s Vice President John Zimmerman. “Of course, as with any photo that will be published, the photographer should secure permission of the person or people featured, especially minor children.”

Photographers who believe they have a winning photo can easily qualify for the contest by joining the Recreational Flying Association at Photos will be accepted for consideration up to and including June 1, 2018.
