May Photo Contest Finalists: Pick Your Favorite!

Excuse the hyperbole, but these picture are pretty freakin' great.

Photo contest fans, this may or may not be officially it: your last chance to pick one of your peers to be published in the print edition of The Washingtonian.

As a reminder, there was no theme for our May photo contest. To make this the best possibly last photo contest possible, we asked participants to send us their most exceptional picture. The results were bright, bold, and color-drenched—just the way we like 'em. Look for a runners up gallery next week that will showcase the six pictures that just barely missed the finalist round.  

Polls will close at midnight on Tuesday, May 31—so vote wisely, and vote enthusiastically. Best of luck to all the contestants, and the winner will be published in our July issue. 

And now, on to the poll. Please remember to play fair! The rules allow one vote per person, and we monitor the polls closely. If we catch voting irregularities for a particular photograph it will 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.
