The Census takes a snapshot of a place once every ten years– but what would DC’s snapshot look like? The DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, FotoWeek DC, and the DC Counts Campaign are joining together to sponsor a photo contest that answers that question. Fifty one portraits will be selected that show “the multiplicity of faces that call DC home.” Selected images will be displayed at Social in Columbia Heights and online.
Here’s the fine print: photographers must be DC residents to participate. Photos must have been taken in DC within the past year, and photographers must have a signed release form from the subject. If you’d like your work to be considered, submit up to three portraits (in print and digitally via CD) by March 30th to the Commission on the Arts and Humanities. There are so many great portraits that perfectly capture aspects of the city over in our Flickr pool, so we hope some of you fabulous photographers submit your work for this contest!
