We’re proud to present the winners of our Second Annual Photo Contest. Our judges selected five winners—a Grand Prize winner, and a winner in each of the four categories: Military, Civilian, Astronomy, and People & Planes. A sixth winner, the Readers’ Choice image, was selected by readers in a two-month vote on our website. Once again, the entries were extraordinary. We received images of E-2Cs heading home after a year-long deployment and World War II aircraft and veterans being honored at airshows around the country. We saw volunteers restoring airplanes and emotional farewells to retiring aircraft. There were photos of distant nebulae and nearby Northern Lights, solar eclipses and the dark side of the moon. You can see the 40 finalists on airspacemag.com.
Thanks to everyone who entered a photograph or voted in our Readers’ Choice category. In our next issue, we’ll include information about the 2015 photo contest, so head for an airshow, look up at the night sky, or travel to an aviation museum to capture a moment of history, and send us your best shots.
