As much as you all DMVers love taking pictures — of themselves, as well as everything/one else — I figured you would all get a real treat out of this:
The Old Post Office Pavilion, a national landmark and specialty entertainment center, announces a photo contest in honor of National Camera Day, now through July 31. Local residents and tourists are encouraged to submit their best photograph taken at the Old Post Office Pavilion for a chance to win big prizes and local fame. The photo contest is being launched as an innovative way to celebrate Washington DC from the Old Post Office Pavilion’s beautiful and unique perspective.
Digital photos may be submitted online at Facebook.com/OldPostOfficeDC, Twitter.com/OldPostOfficeDC, Flickr, or by email at OldPostOfficeDC@RMDadvertising.com. One first place winner will receive a year’s worth of free dining at the Old Post Office Pavilion, as well as have his or her photograph featured online, in social media and in the August e-newsletter.
“DC is home to some of the most unique views in the country – many of which can be discovered at the Old Post Office Pavilion or at the top of our Clock Tower with its 360-degree vista,” said Rodney Dyer, General Manager, Old Post Office Pavilion. “As a city that embraces the arts, we wanted to create an exciting activity that would both recognize National Camera Day and bring the community together for a fun challenge. I hope that DC residents and tourists alike have as much fun participating in this photo contest as we did putting it together.”
The Old Post Office Pavilion, as part of Hill Partners, Inc., is a specialty and entertainment center located midway between the White House and the U.S. Capitol, and conveniently near Washington’s top hotels, federal and private office buildings, the national monuments and more.
So charge your cameras/smartphones and put your made-for-social-media picture-taking skills to the test. Good luck and be sure to share your winning submittals with us.
