In case you missed it, we decided to extend our contest all the way to February 28. That gives you plenty of time to send us your best images of life in the D.C. region and increase your chances of being part of our annual show at Dupont Underground in May.
We have a lot of great events in the meantime! Join us for our January happy hour this Tuesday at Board Room. Then on Friday, February 2, we’re opening a new exhibit at the Crystal City Fotowalk! You can see the exhibit up now anytime, but we hope you’ll join us for a glass of wine and meet the talented photographers we’re featuring in this round.
