February Photo Contest: Love Actually
Predictable, we know, but how could we resist? By Sarah Zlotnick
Comments () | Published January 31, 2011
Between swooning over the picture of the sweet couple that Danie Smallwood submitted to last month’s “Caught in the Moment” contest and planning for our stuffed-to-the-brim Valentine’s Day Guide (be sure to check it out for restaurant specials and dozens of great date ideas), it seemed only fitting to focus on falling in love for our February photo contest. Are your friends and family sick of staring at all your mushy photos? Send them our way. Proposals, first dates, hand-holding, wedding pictures, Eskimo kisses—if the picture’s got anything to do with love, sweet love (in Washington, of course), we can’t wait to see it. PS—We’re also on the lookout for love stories for a special Valentnine’s Day feature. If you’re better at writing this stuff down than capturing it with a camera, be sure to share those as well!

For anyone new to this photo contest, here’s how it works: Submissions will be accepted until noon on Tuesday, February 22. Our judges will pick the finalists, but reader votes ultimately determine the winning photo, which will be published in the April issue of The Washingtonian.

Photos—one per e-mail, please—should be sent to photocontest@washingtonian.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.

Our policy on photo rights: The photographer retains the copyright. However, because the photographer has submitted his or her photo to the contest, the magazine has the right to print the winning photograph in the current issue of the magazine and online as well as in any future issues as long as usage is related to the photo contest. The magazine also has the right to use submissions online in relation to the photo contest.
