TCC PHOTO | GALLERY is proud to announce

I am proud to announce the City of Longview was selected to host the Balloon Federation of America National Hot Air Balloon Championship from 2012 – 2015, so we thought it only fitting to cast an National Call for Entry for Hot Air Balloons photographs that will be on display while the Hot Air Balloonists are in Longview. The exhibit will be on display from July 23 – September 14, 2012. Harvey Stein juror.

According to Wikapedia: The hot air balloon is the oldest successful human-carrying flight technology. It is in a class of aircraft known as balloon aircraft. On November 21, 1783, in Paris, France, the first untethered[1]manned flight was made by Jean-François Pilâtre de Rozier and François Laurent d’Arlandes in a hot air balloon created on December 14, 1782 by theMontgolfier brothers.[2] Hot air balloons that can be propelled through the air rather than just being pushed along by the wind are known as airships or, more specifically,thermal airships.

Send us your best shot of the oldest human-carrying flight technology, the hot air balloon. The hot air balloon does not have to be in the air, but the photograph has to have an element of the hot air balloon in the image.
