About DC State Fair 2012 Photography Contest
DC didn't have a county fair or state fair where DC residents could show off their talents in things like baking, canning, urban agriculture, photography, or crafting. But that all changed in 2010 when a group of bloggers offered competitions such as Tastiest Tomato, Best Home-Made Pie, a neighborhood photo contest, and so forth. Because of the success of the event, the new tradition is continuing and expanding this year. DC residents can submit their entries for a chance to win glory and prizes. The DC State Fair will be held on Saturday September 22 at Barracks Row Fall Festival, near Eastern Market metro.
About the Photo Contest
Join the fun by entering the DC State Fair photo contest: Show us your images of supreme DC spirit! Display our cultural independence in photos! Enter your two best images to our Flickr pool by midnight on Saturday, September 15.
The DC State Fair team, with special guest judges Dan Silverman of Prince of Petworth, Claudia Holwill of Brunch and the City and The Hill is Home, and photographer Kate Headley, will pick a handful of semi-finalists, which will be displayed online the week before the fair. Our First, Second, and Third Place Winners will be printed, framed, and displayed at the DC State Fair on September 22. Winners will get to take their framed prints home, to show off their DC pride to friends and family, in addition to ribbons and small cash prizes.
Entrants must live in the District of Columbia and there is a two-photo limit per person.
There is no fee to enter the DC State Fair Photography Contest. However, donations to the 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization are greatly appreciated! Judging will be blind, and donation status will not affect results. You can always visit our PayPal donation page (www.dcstatefair.org/paypal.html) whenever you get the itch to help DC State Fair out!
