May Photo Contest: Submissions Close Friday!

Time to dust off the old protractor: The theme for our May photo contest is shapes and geometry. Send in your entries before noon on Friday, May 15.

Last month's winner. Congrats, Yulia!

Last month’s photo contest wrapped up yesterday with Yulia Gorbachenko’s Ocean City photograph coming out on top with 36 percent of the reader vote. Congrats, Yulia! Look for her picture in the June issue of The Washingtonian.

For our May contest, we’re setting the Way Back Machine for tenth-grade geometry class. We want your best shots of triangles, circles, squares, trapezoids, or any other shape you can imagine. Be creative; get abstract if you want. Dazzle us with your ingenuity.

Here’s how the contest works: After collecting your photos for the next two weeks, our judges will pick the best entries. Then we’ll open it up to you, the reader, to help choose the winner. The photograph with the most reader votes at the end of the month will be crowned and will appear in the July issue of The Washingtonian.

Submit as many entries as you’d like to, but attach only one photo per e-mail, please. With your entries, be sure to 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, May 15. Finalists will be contacted when the reader voting goes live.

As always, we’re looking for photos that were taken in the Washington area—including the Maryland and Virginia suburbs—by local photographers only.

Good luck!
