Announcing the 2013 DCist Exposed Photography Show: DCist

No, you’re not hallucinating. It’s time for a seventh round of DCist Exposed! The images of last year’s marvelous show have barely escaped our memories. Long View Gallery played the gracious and ideal host to two glorious opening nights, enjoyed by patrons partaking in delectable libations as they admired the artwork. Prepare yourselves, people, for similarly delightful times once again.

If you haven’t been down this path with us before, allow us to show you the way. If you’ve been snapping away around the D.C. metro area – whether with your cameraphone, your point & shoot, or your Nikon D800 – you’ve got a month or so to pick your top three shots. Show us our city the way people who live and work here every day see it, and we’ll pick the cream of the crop for our exhibition. Read the rules below for all the details.
