Photo Contest Winners: Halloween in Washington

Every week, we’ll pick winning photos to showcase on our website.

How are you celebrating Halloween this year? We’d like to see photos of your costumes, your pets’ costumes, pumpkin carvings, spooky decorations, and any other ways you’re celebrating this year. (Bonus: Once you’ve sent your snaps to us, you can also submit them to the Library of Congress—here’s how.)

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 photos on Monday, November 3.
