Aviation division announces first ever Washington Airport Guide Cover Photo Contest

By Christina Crea

Washington state is full of aviation heritage and enthusiasts. Our aviation division wants to celebrate the spirit of aviation in the state by holding our first ever photo contest to determine the new cover photo of the Washington State Airport Guide.

We want a fantastic picture to be on the cover of our printed 2022-2024 Washington Airport Guide. It's your chance for thousands of people to see your best Washington aviation shot!

How to submit a photo

Send your photo submissions via email to between February 18th and March 6th. Please limit three submissions per entrant. We will compile entries for judging by the public.

Photo requirements and contest rules

We want something unique, striking and interesting. We want a photo that encapsulates the spirit of aviation in our beautiful state! There is so much to love about the varied geography of our state which makes it a great place to fly. Photos should capture what makes flying in Washington so special. In addition to the submission qualifications listed above, each entrant must follow these requirements and rules:

  • Your photo:
    • Must have an aviation theme and be set in Washington state
    • Must have been taken yourself and you have the rights to submit it to this contest. The winning entrant may be required to submit a Copyright Release Form.
    • May have been taken at any time.
    • Digital photos should be taken at the highest resolution possible.
    • Please submit in JPG, TIFF, or PNG format
  • Do not break any federal, state, or local laws or do anything unsafe in order to snap a shot.
  • You may submit up to three pictures. If you submit more than three, we will only consider the first three shared.
  • You will retain rights to your photograph; however, as a condition of entering this contest, you grant WSDOT a perpetual and non-exclusive license to display, reproduce, or prepare derivative works of the submitted photograph or photographs for WSDOT Aviation purposes. Entries will be credited and will never be used by WSDOT for commercial advertising or sale.
  • Submissions will not be accepted once the submission deadline has lapsed.

Selecting a winner

We will be gathering all photo submissions and placing them on Survey Monkey for the public to select their favorite photo. The photo with the most votes will win the cover photo contest. The winner will be acknowledged in the inside cover of the guide with a small biography, photo of the winner, and description of the winning photo.

Voting on Survey Monkey will begin Wednesday, March 9th and will close Wednesday, March 16th. The winner will be announced Friday, March 18th.
