Contest Judge – Melissa Golden
President of WPOW

DC-based editorial photographer Melissa Golden shoots the things you're not supposed to talk about at the dinner table. Her work is directly influenced by her stints on both American coasts, the Deep South, and the Middle East. After graduating from college with two somewhat unnecessary degrees, she transitioned from newspapers to the wires to the magazine work she does today. Melissa’s photography has been recognized by American Photography, the White House News Photographer’s Association, and the Eddie Adams Workshop and has been shown at exhibitions in DC, LA, Stockholm and Cape Town. Her clients include the Wall Street Journal, Parade, Fast Company, Fortune, Politico Magazine, and Rolling Stone among others.

Open Now through May 22nd at Midnight

Instructions on how to submit images will be sent with the order confirmation.

FotoWeek DC, a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization, is committed to raising awareness of the power of photography everywhere, in all its forms.
