DCist Exposed Photography Show in 7th Year

DCist ExposedAspiring local photographers can submit their photographic flashes of brilliance in the seventh annual DCist Exposed Photography Competition through January 9, 2013.

Heather Goss, former DCist Managing and Arts Editor, founded the competition in 2007. The idea sprung from the success of DCist’ Flickr photo community, and the number of compelling images of the city posted there. The contest’s popularity quickly took off, and DCist has hosted the event with help from Goss’ Ten Mile Square ever since.

The competition culminates with an exhibition of selected entries at Long View Gallery from March 27 through April 7. Last year, the exhibit drew more than 1,000 visitors, thanks in part to the opening night parties. The number of contestants has grown from just over 200 in 2007 to over 650 in 2012, and 40 people were selected to show their photos at Long View in 2012.

This year, DCist has launched a new site for the competition with all of the details about entering and a complete list of past winners. Those who want to enter should join DCist Exposed Flickr photo group, submit three of their best photos, fill out an online application, and pay the $10 entry fee. The contest organizers will be looking for images that capture “amazing, every day Washington, D.C. experiences.”

So, members of the Borderstan Reader Photos Flickr pool, here is your chance to make us proud! Follow the link for  past coverage of the DCist Exposed Photography Show.
