See Entries from the Phillips Collection’s "Snapshot" Competition (Pictures)

The Dupont Circle museum offered a Nikon 1 camera to the winner of its art-themed photography contest.

Ever stop to wonder if your oh-so-artful Instagram snaps are
actually gallery-worthy? To coincide with its recent exhibit,
“Snapshot: Painters and Photography, Bonnard to
Vuilliard,”

which looked at the influence of early photography on
post-Impressionist artists, the Phillips Collection launched a
competition

to win a Nikon 1 camera. Entrants had to take a photograph
based on one of nine selected works from the exhibition, being
as creative as possible.

The winner, chosen at random from almost 100 entries,
was Caroline Olsen from Chevy Chase, whose picture is displayed above.
We’ve compiled some of the most interesting and original
pictures into a slideshow, so take a look and let us know your favorite
in the comments.
