To add to the current motive request miles awards we are launching the Unique Shot of the Month competition (AKA oddball of the month) for shots that are unique, interesting and attract attention but do not currently qualify for a motive request miles award.

Initially, there will be a single monthly award of 10,000 miles for the winning shot but we will add runner-up awards if there is enough interest and enough qualifying uploads to justify it.

The rules:
  • Qualifying shots must be uploaded during the current month.
    For this first month, any shot uploaded during September counts, including shots uploaded before this post.
  • For a shot to be considered they must not qualify for any of the current motive request miles awards.
  • Winning shots will be decided by a crew members' vote conducted in the first week of the following month.
  • For your shot to be considered, post a reply in this thread with said shot and any background information you feel is relevant

Each month's winning shot will also be featured on our social media pages, provided they are of sufficient quality.

Pretty much anything out of the ordinary counts, but these are some examples of recent shots that would not otherwise qualify for motive request miles awards but would be considered for the Unique Shot of the Month:

Rare hybrid schemes, such as:

Unique types with an interesting back-story, such as:

One-offs, home builds, flops and failed prototypes, such as:

If you have any further questions feel free to ask. Happy hunting!
A million great ideas...

Note sure how unique this is but I figure Paul needs at least some competition...

Just once in a while, let us exalt the importance of ideas and information.

And let's try this one - our only image of the inside of Tempelhof's terminal building...

This will be carried over until the end of October due to a lack of entries. If there is still little interest after that we will award the miles for this two month period and shelve the award.

If this is still open, I'd love to submit Boeing's Catfish. Easily one of the weirdest aircraft I've ever seen. (The weirdest I've seen in person, I think. Even counting a fair few museum oddballs.)
