Cherry Blossom Photo Contest

February 15, 2011 10:52 pm

It happens every year, like clockwork – the trees around the Tidal Basin in Washington, D.C. erupt in a haze of pink.  Petals pop brightly against the brown-gray bark and weigh heavy on the limbs that were bare for so long.  When the wind blows, soft pink flowers float through the sky, coating the surface of water, grass, and the sidewalks underfoot, crowded with visitors who stroll along beneath the branches, happy at Mother Nature’s acknowledgement that winter is over.  (Perhaps “happy” isn’t strong a strong enough word!)

As part of the annual Cherry Blossom Festival, FotoDC announces a Cherry Blossom Photo Contest!  Photographers may submit photos in three categories – Landscape, People, & Festivities – for a chance at some fantastic prizes.

The contest is open NOW for submissions and will close at 11:59 p.m. on April 11, 2010.  Photos entered BEFORE March 22 are discounted, so don’t miss out, but only submit photos taken within the past two years (since February 1, 2009.  Those are the rules – For all rules and pricing details, click HERE.

We can’t wait to see all of the winning photos!
