we're all winners!
Yes, exactly. I mean, there's the chance to be interviewed, and the opportunity to let the WaPo reprint, alter, or otherwise do whatever the heck they'd like to do with your images and application materials going forward...but apparently the paper admits that neither of these counts as a prize per se.
Anyway, over at greg.org, Greg Allen points out that if you opted instead to enter the WaPo's area high school photography competition...you could win a $100 gift card!
So, WaPo: You wanted to let D.C. area artists know how much you're willing to do to support their scene, right? Mission accomplished!
