We need your votes: Click here to place your vote.

After a stunning weekend at the Abbotsford International Airshow (Aug. 8-10), the public can relive some of the best, most picturesque moments and vote for their favourite photograph.

The Your Best Shot contest invited photographers from across the province to submit images. Finalists were chosen and given VIP access to this year’s airshow.

These 60 finalists were asked to submit a maximum of 10 photographs in the following categories: aircraft in flight or on runway, aircraft/static display, wildcard and airshow crowd photograph.

The People’s Choice Photo Award Contest winner will be decided by online voting, which is now up and running.

Last year more than 36,000 people cast their votes online.

More than 500 images from all of the photographers, from Vancouver to Nelson and Surrey to Vernon have been posted online, and the overall winner will receive four tickets to the upcoming Brad Paisley concert held at Abbotsford Centre on Oct. 3. One lucky voter will also receive two tickets to the same concert. Sponsored by the Abbotsford Centre.

A judging panel will also be deciding the winners of the Amateur Photographer of the Year, including Best Air photo, Best Crowd Photo and Best Static photo. Prize certificates sponsored by London Drugs will be awarded to the best photographs of the show in the various categories.

You can also view contest entries at Instagram, #AbbyNews, or see photographers in action at Facebook.

Voting deadline is Sept. 7 at midnight.

The Next Generation Amateur Photographer of the Year and People’s Choice Award is sponsored by London Drugs, Abbotsford International Airshow and Black Press Community News Media.
