Say Hello to Summer!

Summer in the city is a wonderful thing. It means outdoor restaurants, canoes, swimsuits, lots of sunlight… and photos upon photos of all the fun you’re having!

We love hearing your voices on our blog. Now we want to see our city through your eyes, too! How do you see the world, and the EcoWomen community? Do you have beautiful images you’d like to share? We’re kicking off our 2nd Annual Photo Contest and we’re hoping to hear from YOU!

Submit your photos for a chance for your work to be recognized within our community – and to win some fabulous prizes!

There are three themes for your submissions:

Women in the Eco-Workplace: We want to see your photos of women eco-professionals, changing the world at work in whatever “workplace” means to you: from your office, to the Hill, to your stand at the farmer’s market or classroom.

DC’s Natural Urbanity: We’re lucky that our city is so full and so close to nature! Showcase your favorite city/nature hotspots ! Tell us in the description how they help you refresh your urban self.

Sustainable Living: Gardening in your backyard? Using a solar charger for your iphone? Vermicomposting? Show us how you and your friends are keeping your practices real and green.

Prizes will be awarded for each winners of the three Themes, and one for an overall Grand Prize.

Check out the official Photo Contest page – and be sure to read the Rules and Guidelines. And check out our Flickr Group, with all of last year’s top photo contenders.

Be sure to act fast! The contest is only open between June 8th and July 9th, 11:59pm EST. So don’t forget to bring your camera with you for inspiration on your next outing!
