April Photo Contest: The Finalists

Help us pick the winner of April’s architecture-themed photo contest.

Boy, you people sure know how to take a great building shot. Photos rolled in by the barrel-full for this month’s architecture contest, and we were delighted to see local photogs branch out beyond the typical memorial and Smithsonian shots. Kudos for recognizing the beauty in subjects less photographed, participants!

We’ve narrowed it down to five favorites, but the winner is up to you. Check out our finalists' gallery (see it in a new window here), then scroll to the bottom of this page to vote for the photo you think should win. The picture with the most votes by noon on Friday, April 30, will run in the June issue of The Washingtonian.

A gentle reminder of the rules: It’s one vote per person, and we monitor the polls closely, so play fair. If we catch voting irregularities for a particular photograph, it’ll be disqualified.

Sad to see your picture missing from the final five? With so many awesome options to choose from this month, we simply didn’t have room to include all the best images. Click here to see if your photo got a shout-out in our runners-up gallery.

>> Details on next month’s contest can be found at starting May 3.

Vote here!

This poll will stay open until noon on Friday, April 30.

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