The Rotor Photo Contest will close at midnight, Nov. 1, 2019.

Helicopters/Drones at Work: This category highlights aircraft in action; no AOG shots, please

Helicopters/Drones in the Military: Photos in this category pay tribute to the aircraft and aviators serving their countries

People and Their Helicopters/Drones: Photos submitted in this category should show aircraft and PEOPLE

Helicopter/Drone Digitally Enhanced Photos: This category is your chance to show off your PhotoShop skills

Who: Open to any adult — no HAI membership required

What: All photos must show all or part of a helicopter or drone (and if you catch some pilots, flight crew, maintenance technicians, or passengers, that’s great too)

When: Submissions are due by midnight Nov. 1, 2019

Why: Because we love great photos of helicopters and drones as much as you do!

Prizes: Your helicopter/drone photo could win up to $500 (or a $100 category prize). Winning photos will also appear in the Winter 2020 issue of ROTOR magazine; winning photos will be displayed at HAI HELI-EXPO 2020 in Anaheim.

Rules: The most important rules for the contest are (1) you must own the copyright to any photos that you submit (in other words, you either took the photo or you can document that you paid the photographer for the rights to the photo) and (2) each photo must show all or part of a helicopter or drone. Please read the ROTOR Photo Contest rules to learn more about these and the other contest rules.
