Photos of Washington taken by community members are wanted for the Capture Washington Photo Contest. The Washington Chamber of Commerce in partnership with Running Robots is seeking photos to update the community’s website and materials. President and founder of Running Robots Adam Engel explains the photography contest, “Capture Washington is really a photo contest that helps us gather and let’s really the community get involved in the information gathering stage that we’re in. So right now we’re taking drones out and we’ve got a couple photographers that are on site. But really we can only capture a piece of Washington, and you know, we want to really include the community in this and really have their feedback, and their pictures, and their experiences captured. So, our goal here is to really reach out to the photographers in Washington, or anyone with a smartphone, or anyone with a really good image that portrays the area.” The contest is also open to historic photos.

The contest is split into the four seasons and the winter deadline is February 28th. The fall contest winners were Barb Swift for first and third place with photos of the DAR log cabin and Steve Roth’s Halloween decorations, and second place was a photo of the high school band on Case Field taken by Cheyenne Miller. Prizes in Chamber Bucks include $250 for first place, $100 for second place, and $50 for third place. To submit photos click here.
