NATIONAL CHERRY BLOSSOM PHOTO CONTEST

FotoDC, in conjunction with the National Cherry Blossom Festival, is sponsoring the first annual Photography Contest, focused exclusively on the beauty of DC's beloved "state" flower. So mark your calendars. Watch the weather. Grab your camera, wake up your imagination, see The Blossoms in a bold new way, then enter the contest.  Enter by March 21st for the 20% early bird discount!
