Announcing the DC State Fair Photography Contest

We are proud to announce the DC State Fair Photography Contest, sponsored by Ten Miles Square!

What’s a state fair without an awesome photo contest? Show us your photos of supreme DC spirit: display our cultural independence in images! Enter your two best images to our Flickr pool by midnight on Sunday, August 22.

Heather Goss from Ten Miles Square and DCist, along with special guest judges and DC Spirit Experts, Philippa Hughes from the Pink Line Project and Dan Silverman from the Prince of Petworth, will pick a handful of favorites for semi-finalists, which will be displayed online the week before the fair. Our Grand Prize Winner, First and Second Runners-Up will be printed, framed, and displayed at the DC State Fair on August 28. Winners will get to take their framed prints home, to show off their DC pride to friends and family.

Winners will also take home ribbons and small cash prizes.  Entrants must live in the District of Columbia.  Finalists’ photos will be displayed on our website the week prior to the fair!

There is no fee to enter the DC State Fair. However, donations are greatly appreciated! Recommended donation is $5 per entry (but judging will be blind, and donation status will not affect results).
