Call For Entries: Summer Photo Contest

Memorial Day is just around the corner. That means it’s time to break out the swimsuits, sandals, sunscreen — and the cameras.

In celebration of their new outdoor canopy — which will help keep patio diners cooler when the sun’s beating down, warmer (thanks to built-in heaters) on cool evenings, and dry during summer downpours — Fire Works Pizza in Courthouse (2350 Clarendon Blvd) is sponsoring a summer-themed photo conest.

We’re looking for your best summer snap from around Arlington. Maybe it’s your friends celebrating a patriotic holiday, neighbors out at a street festival, lightning from a summer thunderstorm, your pet trying to keep cool during the dog days of summer — anything that just screams “summer in Arlington.” (Since it’s not officially summer yet, it’s okay if the photo was taken in previous years.)

Email one photo in JPG format to [email protected] by 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, May 23. Please include your name (which may be published) along with the best email address at which to contact you (which will not be published). ARLnow.com will pick 10 finalists and will let readers vote on their favorites this coming Thursday, May 24.

The finalist that receives the most votes will receive a $100 gift card to Fire Works along with an ARLnow.com tote bag. Second and third place will receive a $50 and $25 Fire Works gift card respectively.

The contest is open to U.S. residents 18 years of age and older. By submitting a photo to the contest you affirm that you took the photo, own the rights to the photo, and agree that ARLnow.com can use the photo for any and all contest-related purposes. Limit one entry per person.

Good luck!

    Does it have to be HDR?

      I think Trevor’s mugshot was done in HDR.

    The Fireworks outdoor canopy is one of the nicer architectural elements along the R-B strip. It is a pleasant contrast to the phony archway-clock of the massive county building next to it.

    It’s not summer yet … my friends aren’t doing cool things … my pool doesn’t even open until next weekend … tsk tsk

  • drax

    Awesome, a contest that basically requires you to go look for photos you may have taken several months ago.

  • CB

    Second and third place don’t get an ARLnow.com tote bag?? :'(

  • YTK

    Pictures of the nut cases that fequent (all too frequently) the Ballston Metro/Bus stop might make the County Board sit up and take notice.
