If 34th Street is Claudia Kishi, then the DP is Janine: our smartypants older sibling who, deep down inside, we love. Below, Photo editor Alex Remnick explains why you should enter the DP‘s photo contest.
This year will go down in history for many reasons, but surely one of the most historic happenings has been the creation of a monthly DP photo contest. Each month has a designated theme, and readers can submit relevant photos. Last month, the costest kicked off with its inagural theme: Inauguration (get it?). This month, we avoided the all-too-easy February theme of love and valentines and instead went for music as our theme. So if you have picture of your boyfriend playing guitar, a crazy snapshot of Amy Winehouse passed out at the Electric Factory, or even just your iPod (but from, like, a really cool angle), you could win!
The deadline for submissions is February 25th. The winner will have their photograph printed on page two of the paper, not to mention all the glory, fame, and popularity that comes with it. Submit photos to firstname.lastname@example.org. Good luck!
