This photography exhibit features the best and most beautiful images from D.C.-area photographers. Over 1,000 images were submitted, with just 45 being accepted into what will be an extraordinary show of talent. This show was juried by Keith Lane and E.

The Grand, Second, and Third place winners will receive cash prizes from Exposed DC and InstantDC, and five Honorable Mentions will receive prizes sponsored by BorrowLenses.com. Special thanks go out to Capitol Hill Frame & Photo, which is (you guessed it) printing and framing the winning images.

See you on October 3!
