Who decides on what screen shots out of the galleries go into the contest? Also, what is it based on? Like creativity, quality, airline, aircraft, etc.?

Aaron decides but he'll have to tell you what criteria he uses.

I decide what screenshots get selected. A lot of the features you mentioned go into it: creativity and quality for sure. Talking about each of these though:
-Creativity: new approaches to screenshots are always good moves. Some examples of great creativity:
http://www.simairline.net/screenshots/3575.jpg
http://www.simairline.net/screenshots/2005/1796.jpg
http://www.simairline.net/screenshots/2004/1299.jpg
Is it a coincidence that they're all Alitalia? Maybe not, for Italians have great style...

What's especially uncreative: a cockpit shot that has nothing interesting outside

-Quality: please take a look at my suggestions for creating good screenshots here. If a screenshot is breaking one of those, it had better have some other redeeming features. For instancel, nothing looks worse than an aircraft with a tiny bit (like a winglet or part of the tail) cropped out.

Some other factors come into play as well: as a general rule, I try not to select more than three of the twelve screenshots to come from a single person. Also, if there are two (or more) really good screenshots that are very similar from the same person that are worth adding, I generally only add what I think is the better one to avoid vote-splitting, which would hurt the author.

I only vote in contests to break ties.

Thanks Aaron for clearing this up with me! This helps a lot! I will definitely put this information into play.

Do you not mind cabin shots?

Personally I think cabin shots are boring, and often look fake as FS doesn't simulate or show cabins very well at the best of times. They don't look too good and I'd much prefer a shot of the beautiful exterior of the plane. I think Aaron looks for shots with originality in them, not a simple shot of the cabin or VC.

I think Aaron chose that becasue it was more original than other shots that are out there, but personally I don't like shots like that as the graphics and interior are very blocky and unrealistic.
