Well folks, we were definitely impressed with your photo contest efforts this month. Between the Twitter #hashtags, bros mugging with their jeeps, and impromptu snowball fights, it was great to see the truly fun side of the storm that ate Washington show through. That being said, the judging process was not without its few touching moments—K.N. Vinod, the paramedics who reconnected your father's oxygen supply deserve much more than the shout-out we're attempting right here.
The six shots selected here don't cover all our favorites, but do best represent a cross-sample of angles and subjects. See them up-close in our finalists gallery, then vote for your favorite in the poll below. The photograph with the most votes as of noon on Monday, January 3 will appear in the February issue of The Washingtonian, just in time to commemorate the one-year anniversary of the storm that inspired it.
Please remember to play nice! The rules allow one vote per person, and we monitor the polls closely. If we catch voting irregularities for a particular photograph, it’ll be disqualified.
*To help keep this contest fair, we’ve elected to use an IP-address-based poll. This means that if you’re voting from an office or network setting, not everybody in that setting will be able to vote. We apologize for the inconvenience, but we hope you’ll encourage coworkers to vote from their home computers.
