The Museum of Flight once again hosted its annual Spirit of Flight juried photography exhibition. Exhibit participation is open to all photographers, and photographs need only reflect a "Spirit of Flight". The exhibit was on display in the Museum's Great Gallery from June through September 1, 2013.

2013 marked the fifth anniversary of this popular exhibit and the 2013 show was better than ever. The Museum received hundreds of submissions from over 20 states and countries as far away as Israel. From those entries, a jury made up of representatives from the Museum's curatorial, exhibits and marketing staff selected 40 outstanding photographs to go on display.

How to Enter:

Though the 2013 exhibit is now closed, we plan to do other Spirit of Flight shows in the years to come. If you are interested in being a future Spirit of Flight photographer, keep taking pictures and watch the website for next year's submission announcement. The entry process usually begins in January.
