Places of DC Photo Competition

Photo by Armando Gallardo 

DC is simultaneously one of the most iconic and most under-represented urban landscapes in the country. We invite you to yes, turn your lens to the monuments and things that make Washington recognizable to the world but also to go exploring: the secret trails, the alleys, the street art, the diversity of our neighborhoods - they are all a perfect opportunity for creating a visual snapshot of our city in 2015.


1st Prize – $400 & A Lomo'Instant Boston Edition


Here is another way to enjoy analogue experience and capture great memories in an instant!
This package includes 3 creative Lenses - Fisheye, Portrait & Closeup.

Contest Judge – Frank Hallam Day
 Fine Art Photographer

Frank Hallam Day is a fine art photographer based in Washington DC. He was the winner of the prestigious 2012 Leica Oscar Barnack Prize as well as the Bader Prize in 2006, and numerous other awards, commissions and grants. His work has been widely exhibited within the United States and abroad, and has been collected by the Berlinische Gallerie und Landesmuseum Berlin, the Baltimore Museum of Art, the Orlando Museum of Art, the Portland Art Museum, the Corcoran Gallery and the San Diego Museum of Photographic Arts, among others. In 2013 he executed a photographic commission for the Pew Charitable Trust and for Rosslyn, Virginia, and was awarded a grant for a residency at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts. A monograph of his photographs of RV’s at night in the Florida jungles was published by Kehrer Press in 2012, and won a prize from Photo District News the following year. His work has often been concerned with the fraught relationship between man and nature, as in the RV series and earlier work on the manmade landscape along the eastern littoral of the U.S. Much of his work is also concerned with the semiotics of culture and social history, as in his series on the impact of globalization on African culture, and on the erasure of cultural, political and personal memory in the rebuilding of East Berlin in the 1990‘s. Day is currently working on a series on abandoned phone booths in Bangkok. He is represented by Addison/Ripley Fine Art in Washington, DC.
