DC State Fair Photography Contest & More

This year’s DC State Fair has a bunch of great contests: from pie making, to knitting and crocheting, to homebrewing, and even fermenting veggies (mmmmm…sauerkraut…). But the one that’s near and dear to my heart is the photo contest. I won third place two years ago (with this photo) and I’ve been wanting to enter again; but I can’t, because I’m living in Maryland now. However, if you’re living in the District, and you take great, Featured Photo quality photos, then this is the contest for you! And we all know the photo contributors of this site take some amazing photos. So, be sure to enter by midnight this Saturday, September 21st. Good luck! And if someone wins with sauerkraut, could you please send me a big container of it?

DC is getting a state fair, part of Columbia Heights Day, and they are looking for photographers to enter their first ever photo competition. The theme of the photos should be to show your DC spirit and DC’s cultural independence.

You need to be a resident of the District to enter, but entry is free. Judges from Ten Miles Square (who is sponsoring the event), the Pink Line Project, and Prince of Petworth, along with a few guest judges will pick the winners. The winning photos will be printed and framed and displayed at the DC State Fair tent, and the winners will get ribbons, and a small cash prize.

Read the rules and enter up to two photos on their Flickr group. You’ve got until August 22.
