Well, folks, the entries are in, and we’ve pulled our artsy favorites. These five finalists aren’t necessarily the weirdest shots in the bunch, but each features a creative, unexpected angle on everyday Washington life. See our favorites up close in the finalists’ gallery, then vote for your choice below. The photograph with the most votes as of noon on Tuesday, November 30, will appear in the January issue of The Washingtonian.
Please remember to play nice! The rules allow 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.
