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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
