July Photo Contest: The Finalists

Vote for your favorite After Hours photo.

Neon lights and Latin dancing spiced up several entries in this month’s contest: photos of Washington when the sun goes down. After perusing bright colors and fun times, our judges decided on five pictures to send to the next round. Take a closer look in our finalists’ gallery, then cast your vote in the poll below. The photograph with the most votes as of noon on Friday, July 30, will be in the September issue of The Washingtonian.
Please remember to play nice. The rules allot one vote per person, and we monitor the polls closely. If we catch voting irregularities for a particular photograph, it’ll be disqualified.
* 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.
