Don’t listen to the haters, Washington—we know you know how to have a good time. That’s why this month’s photo contest is about all-things celebration. Whether it’s marking milestones or commemorating jobs well done, we want to see how you rise to the occasion.  

That being said, we know there’s a million and five ways, places, and reasons to get down in our area, so don’t limit yourself to standard party pics. Birthday fetes, victory dances, or even a quiet toast between friends—if there’s a reason to be happy behind the photo, then we’re looking forward to seeing it.

Here’s how the contest works: Submissions will be accepted until noon on Monday, May 17. Our judges will select the finalists, then we’ll open it up to you, dear readers, to select a favorite. The winner will be published in the July issue of The Washingtonian.

Photos—one per e-mail, please—should be sent to photocontest@washingtonian.com. Be sure to include the photographer’s name, phone number, e-mail address, and place of residence, along with a sentence or two about the photo and where it was taken and explaining why it fits the theme. You can submit as many photos as you’d like, but just 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.

Fun-loving Washingtonians, we know you’re out there! Get those cameras out and prove it.

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 the finalists online in relation to the photo contest.
