Breitling Photo Contest Winners Announced

Breitling Photo Contest

In order to share its passion for aviation, Breitling recently launched a photo competition on Facebook. The lucky winner has been selected and will have the opportunity to take his pilot’s license entirely paid for by the brand. Find wallpaper-size versions of the winning images inside.

The first-prize winner is Jeremy P. Hampton, from Overland Park, Kansas, for his photo “Future of flight meets the history of flight”. Jeremy’s image was chosen from the 5,000 pictures selected for the competition. As the winner, he will receive a full all-expenses paid training course leading up to his pilot’s license.

The winner of the second prize, Tyler Rogoway, from Portland, Oregon will fly with the Breitling Jet Team, the largest civilian professional flight team performing in jets.

The winners were chosen by Breitling fans on Facebook, as well as by a panel of top-level judges including actor and pilot John Travolta, famous air-to-air photographer Katsuhiko Tokunaga, aviation pioneer Yves “Jetman” Rossy, Breitling Jet Team aerobatics team leader Jacques Bothelin, hot-air balloonist Brian Jones – co-pilot of the world’s first nonstop round-the-world balloon flight aboard Breitling Orbiter 3 in 1999 – as well as Tony Velocci, editor-in-chief of the prestigious U.S. magazine Aviation Week.

    BREITLING IS A JOKE, THEY SHORT CHANGED ME FROM WINNING A CONTEST ABOUT A DECADE AGO , I RECEIVED 3RD PRIZE WHICH I ONLY GOT A HAT AND A SHIRT, BUT I STUCK TOO ALL THE RULES TO THE CONTEST. IT WAS A WRITING CONTEST, FUNNY HOW THE 1ST PLACE WINNER BROKE ALL THE RULES TO THE CONTEST AND STILL WON IT.
