Photographers, start your engines. Our theme for this month is transportation! We’re accepting your photos of anything and everything that gets you from here to there—from planes, trains, and automobiles to bicycles, Segways, Vespas, and more. Get creative and start sending your photos!

Here’s the lowdown: You submit photographs, and our panel of judges selects the best to run on our Web site. Then you, the reader, will vote for your favorite. The winner be featured in the November issue of The Washingtonian.

Submit as many photos as you like to Please attach only one photo per e-mail, and include the photographer’s name, e-mail address, phone number, and place of residence along with a sentence or two about where the photograph was taken. Photos should be 300 dpi and at least four by six inches. The deadline for submissions is noon on Friday, September 19. Finalists will be contacted when the reader voting goes live.

Oh, and one more reminder: All photos must be taken in the Washington area—including the Maryland and Virginia suburbs—and the photographer must be local.

Good luck!
