February Photo Contest: The Finalists

Our judges selected their top picks in this month’s “stripes” contest. Now we need you to choose a winner.

Where do readers see stripes? Lots of places, apparently. This month’s stripes-themed photo contest fielded entries ranging from the obvious—American flags, zebras—to the downright bizarre. Our favorites? Check them out here.

Now it’s your turn to decide a winner. Once you've perused our finalists’ gallery (open it in a new window here), scroll to the bottom of this page to cast a vote. The photograph with the most votes at noon on Friday, February 26, (just eight days away!) will be declared the winner. It’ll run in the April issue of The Washingtonian.

Of course, with all the good entries this month, we had to run a runners-up gallery. See if your photo caught our eye here.

And remember, it’s only one vote per person, and we monitor the polls closely, so play fair. If we notice voting irregularities for a particular photograph, we’ll disqualify it.

Good luck to the finalists, and happy voting, readers!Looking for next month’s theme? Check back to on March 1 for all the details.

Vote here!

*To help keep this contest fair, we've elected to use an IP address-based poll. This means that if you are voting from an office or network setting, not everybody will be able to vote. We apologize for the inconvenience, but we hope you'll encourage coworkers to vote from their home computers.
