VOTE FOR THE READERS' CHOICE WINNER!

We’re excited to announce the finalists of Air & Space/Smithsonian magazine’s Fifth Annual Photo Contest. Our judges have selected 10 finalists in each of our four categories—Military, Civilian, Astronomy, and People & Planes—and now it’s up to you to determine the Readers’ Choice winner. The photograph that receives the most votes by midnight (EST), January 14, 2018, will receive $100 and be announced alongside our Grand Prize and category winners in our April/May issue, and online in late March 2018.

You can vote once in a 24-hour period, so come back and vote each day.
