March Photo Contest: The Foodie Photo Contest
Three cheers for food porn!
For our Foodie Photo Contest, we’re seeking snaps of anything and everything related to eating. Pictures of mouth-watering meals, the restaurant scene, beautifully laid tables, cooking in the kitchen—if it’s going to make stomachs rumble, send it our way. Amateur foodie photographers, this is your chance!
Here’s how the contest works: Submissions will be accepted until noon on Wednesday, March 23. This month, the top five will be selected by Scott Suchman, The Washingtonian's go-to guy for mouth-watering food photography (you've seen his work all over our 100 Best Restaurant issue). Reader votes ultimately determines the winning image, which will be published in the May issue of The Washingtonian.
Photos—one per e-mail, please—should be sent to email@example.com.
In each e-mail, be sure to include:
• The photographer’s name, phone number, e-mail address, and place of residence
• A sentence or two about the photo explaining where it was taken and why it fits theme
• A title for the photo
You can submit as many photos as you’d like, but make sure each is 300 dpi and at least four by six inches. And remember, the photographer and the subject must be from the Washington area, which includes the Maryland and Virginia suburbs.
