March 10 – April 1, 2016
Exposed DC is celebrating a decade of local photography this year. Since 2006 Exposed DC featured images by D.C.-area photographers who disregard the tourist and political sides of the nation’s capital to reveal the real city we live, love, and work in every day. Exposed DC has consistently kept entry fees low to encourage photographers of all levels to submit their work. It’s time to show what metro-area Washington, D.C. culture, art, food, sports, and street life are to you. For inspiration, you can see last year’s winners here. Winners of the contest will be exhibited March 10–April 1 at a venue truly worthy of a 10-year celebration. Opening night will be held throughout the two floors of the historic Carnegie Library at Mt. Vernon Square, from the elegant ballroom downstairs to The Historical Society of Washington, D.C.‘s upstairs headquarters, where the exhibit will have the honor of being featured next to permanent exhibits that tell the story of our nation’s capital. Winners will also be featured in a special edition of the annual magazine, a companion to our 2011 5th anniversary edition.
