Photo Contest Winners: Capture Your Last Hurrah of Summer

Every week, we'll pick a winning photo to showcase on our website.

The start of fall brings with it the return of many wonderful things—football, your favorite television shows, an excuse to wear your comfiest pair of boots. And this month we’re excited to announce we’re bringing back another favorite: Washingtonian’s Photo Contests. 

To refresh your memory, we pick a different theme each time, and shutterbug readers submit a photo they’ve taken that exemplifies it. The best photo will be featured on our website. Rinse, repeat. 

This week, we’d like to see how you’re spending the last warm days before fall sets in. Share photos of beach days, great outdoor cookouts, or anything that highlights your final days of summer. If you need inspiration, take a look through our Photo Contest archives

Submit your photos by e-mailing or by tagging #WashMagPhoto on Instagram or Twitter. Please include where the photo was taken and your name with each submission. We’ll highlight our favorite photo on Monday, September 15.
