Okay area photogs, another contest for you to consider. Caffé at the Renaissance M Street Hotel is holding a photography contest in celebration of the upcoming FotoWeek. The contest calls for creative snapshots of where people have been with their cup of illy coffee, called “Where Does Your illy Take You.” Photographers are encouraged to explore and discover something new while savoring the unique flavors of illy.

The contest runs from October 1st thru the 22nd. The grand prize is pretty sweet: a weekend stay at the Renaissance M Street Hotel, including $200 in food/beverage credit, a full year of illy coffee at Caffé, two tickets to the FotoWeek DC gala, and a private car with picnic to visit various FotoWeek events. The winning photo and honorable mentions will also be framed and displayed at Caffé.

To enter, submit photos through the contest’s website, which goes live on Thursday. Winners announced on October 26th.

  1. It’s a shame that illy coffee tastes so damned foul or I’d play along. Why can’t I have Intelligentsia or Counter Culture or Stumptown instead?
